Instrumentalist - Violin
CMS Studio Recordings: Elgar and Walton
Released: February 7, 2007
Catalog Num: AASR002
Ani Kavafian, one of the Seattle Symphony's four concertmasters and a Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center regular, is the violinist for this first-rate CD featuring two English works from the early 20th century: the Elgar Piano Quintet and the Walton Piano Quartet. Spirited and lively, the ensemble (which includes pianist Wu Han, second violinist Arnaud Sussmann, violist Paul Neubauer and cellist Fred Sherry) even makes the swoony, café-music moments of the Elgar sound good, and the seldom-heard Walton Quartet gets a searching, committed reading.
