Unknown Enescu Vol. 1 Music for Violin
George Enescu (1881–1955) is one of the great composers, although the world has yet to realise the extent of his achievement. Enescu’s small published œuvre of 33 opus numbers belies the amount of music he produced: he composed prolifically but, as he was both a perfectionist and a busy performer, much of his music is still unknown.
This CD reveals solo, chamber and concertante pieces featuring the violin, played by Sherban Lupu, who understands Enescu’s idiom like few other musicians.
“Throughout the disc Lupu's playing is truly idiomatic, with something of Enescu's own elegantly expressive manner.” Gramophone Magazine, December 2012
“Lupu has arranged several of the pieces in various ways and he also conducts the small ensemble at the University of Illinois that bears Enescu’s name. It’s clearly a labour of love for the Romanian fiddle player.” MusicWeb International, December 2012

Enescu: Chamber Music 1895-1906
Tatiana Samouil (violin), Gérard Caussé (viola), Justus Grimm (cello), Vincent Lucas (flute), Frédéric Mellardi (trumpet) & Claudia Bara (piano)
All the works included in this collection were composed around 1900, during one of Enescu’s most productive periods. The artists performing them are Slavonic and French, contributing to making Enescu’s music universal. The works includes Ballade for violin and piano, Concert piece for viola and piano and Aubade for string trio.
“The performances are warm and sympathetic throughout, underpinned by Claudia Bara's sensitive playing...The instrumental soloists all acquit themselves with aplomb, not least cellist Justus Grimm and flautist Vincent Lucas, although the performance I admired most was Gerard Causse's of the viola Konzertstuck” Gramophone Magazine, April 2012
