This recording aims to cast a spotlight on some of the remarkable, yet forgotten music written for the solo violin between c.1840 and 1919. The long shadow of JS Bach and his own Partitas and Sonatas for Solo Violin looms over some of the works contained on this disc, yet many of the movements liberate themselves from this influence, displaying a resourcefulness and an array of moods that draw the listener into what can otherwise be the precariously narrow sound world of the solo violin. Many of the pieces have never been recorded before and some, particularly the Second Godard Sonata and Saint-Lubin Fantaisie, deserve to take their place beside Bach, Bartók and Ysaÿe as interesting additions to the central works in the solo violin repertoire.


An important, interesting recital that fills big gaps in the solo violin repertoire with premiere recordings - "Vaughan Jones treats all this music to the romantic playing style it deserves. Between his performances and his booklet note you sense great commitment to the project....." --MusicWeb-International

"placed down with great care by technically pristine playing" --Gramophone

"Jones shows off his bowing force with dramatic chopping strokes, and at ease at gliding over the strings in flourishing scale passages.... Jones masterly succeeds in his goal to exhibit unfamiliar styles of the period's violin music" --Fine-Music magazine
