This CD is crammed full of world premiere performances and scintillating playing. These two violinists have inspired some wonderful new works to be written by Australian composers, and hence this first-ever recording of Australian music for two violins, ranging from the raunchy title work by Matthew Hindson to the starry-eyed dreaminess of Mary Finsterer’s Spherica I.
Natsuko is currently Concertmaster of the Adelaide Symphony, and James is Concertmaster Designate of the Hong Kong Sinfonietta, and violiniist with Ensemble Offspring. As a duo their work together is unparallelled in Australia to date - intensely musical and virtuosic to a degree that is outstanding.
All works are world premiere recordings and most were recorded with the composers present.
