Rochberg George Violin Sonata Caprice Sheppard Skaerved Aaron Short Metier

GEORGE ROCHBERG

Violin Sonata (1988); Caprice Variations (1983)

Peter Sheppard Skærved (vln) / Aaron Short (pno)

Presented here is Skærved’s highly regarded recording of the Caprice Variations for solo violin (previously released as MSVCD92065), with the première recording of Rochberg’s 1988 Violin Sonata.

George Rochberg is today regarded as one of the most important American composers of the 20th Century and his list of published compositions is very impressive.

Peter Sheppard Skærved is the dedicatee of well over 200 works for solo violin, by composers such as George Rochberg, Judith Weir, Michael Finnissy, Paul Ruders, and Hans Werner Henze.

He regularly appears as soloist in over 30 countries. His discography is extensive, ranging from cycles of solo works by Beethoven, Reicha, Cui, and Telemann, the complete quartets of David Matthews, Michael Tippett, and cycles of concerti from Haydn to Henze.

“the performance is so compelling that interest never wavers; the recording is fine; and it doesn't matter where the music came from since this magnificent instrument enjoys every note. “ - Peter

Dickinson (Gramophone)

“This quirky, witty, beautiful and often bewildering 90-minute work's sense of shape and purpose feels brilliantly complete.” – Catherine Nelson (The Strad)

“the journey is an impressive one… I have no hesitation in recommending it” - Peter Grahame Woolf (Musical Pointers)
