DEBUT ALBUM RELEASE 13.th of JUNE BY WALKWAY RECORDS
Already available for pre-order on www.walkway.dk
"OBSESSION" consist of four radically different yet equally intense compositions. Belgian virtuoso Eugene Ysaÿe opens the debut album with his second solo sonata for violin "OBSESSION". Aram Khachaturian´s rarely heard "Sonata-Monologue" follows giving a radically different portrait of the solo violin.
"Pavane Extrapolations" by the award-winning young Danish composer Nicklas Schmidt is dedicated to Loussine Azizian. It explores M.Ravels Pavane to the extreme and renders a painfully beautiful yet thoroughly entertaning set of variations for violin and piano.
The album is concluded with the monumental sonata for violin and piano by the Armenian 20th century composer Arno Babadjanian. A phenomenally intense and obsessive work - it is exceedingly rarely performed in the West. With this release Loussine has high hopes of promoting the piece and the composer.
OFFICIAL RELEASE DATE IS 13.JUNE
A release concert and reception will take place in the concert hall of Frederiksberg Library. Walway Records and Esben Tange will introduce the artists and the compositions, followed by a concert and possibility to purchase the album.
