The great, but still neglected composer, Max Reger was an unconditional admirer of J. S. Bach. His works for unaccompanied violin are inspired by the sonatas and partitas of his illustrious model. Here they strike up a dialogue as if between two mirror images, right down their respective chaconnes. A fascinating comparison! Sayaka performs on the 1729 Elman Stradivarius

Gramophone Magazine

July 2011

“Shoji isn't merely a superb technician, she's a deeply engaging performer who punches above her weight. The richly resonant, spirited sound that the diminutive young violinist produces with her 1729 "Recamier" Stradivarius is impressive and so, too, is the poetic delicacy of her phrasing.”
