The PARMA Album of the Day: VIOLIN FUTURA


Piotr Szewczyk‘s Navona Records album VIOLIN FUTURA, released in February of last year, is a collection of commissioned miniatures for solo violin that highlight over thirty international contemporary composers and how they are re-imagining the solo violin. “The purpose of the Violin Futura Project,” says Szewczyk, “is to sample the creative environment of our times by showcasing the wide variety of styles present in the 21st century, and to create a body of a new solo violin repertoire.” Gramophone, the curator of “The Worlds Best Classical Music Reviews,” says that the pieces in Szewczyk’s VIOLIN FUTURA “are so concisely crafted and often compelling–and sometimes really fun–that one can only give in and applaud the scope of the project.”

Find VIOLIN FUTURA on Amazon, iTunes,  ArkivMusic, and Spotify.
