Young cutting-edge violinist Pekka Kuusisto is featured on this disc together with acclaimed guitarist Ismo Eskelinen.

Together, they perform entertaining and unjustly neglected duo works for violin and guitar by Niccolò Paganini.

Hailed by the British press as “absolutely mesmerising” and “maybe the best thing to happen to classical music in years,” (The Guardian), Pekka Kuusisto is acclaimed for his tone and technique, as well as for the spontaneity and freshness of his playing.

His award winning recording of Sibelius's Violin Concerto remains a bestseller in the Ondine catalogue and was only recently listed by the BBC Music Magazine (June 2009) among the best ever renditions of this work.

Gramophone Magazine

April 2010

“These are exciting, imaginative performances, full of wit and character and porbably better than the music deserves...Kuusisto is cheeky, bold and unfailingly musical. Both he and Eskelinen also favour a crisp attack and lots of tonal variation...sterling entertainment.”
