Inspired by Paganini to perfect his skills as a violinist, Léon de Saint-Lubin enjoyed a highly successful career in Vienna, where Beethoven wrote a cadenza especially for him, and in Berlin, where he presented luminaries such as Liszt, Mendelssohn and Spohr in concert.
Several of Saint-Lubin’s spectacular violin works are here revived by the talented young American-based Anastasia Khitruk, whose other Naxos recordings have been acclaimed.

“Anastasia Khitruk and Elizaveta Kopelman are ideal advocates for Saint-Lubin, a well matched duo who clearly enjoy and make the most of the virtuosity, and bring the more expressive passages to life in a graceful, vivacious way.”
