This month has been ex­cel­lent for vi­o­lin­ists, and for pro­grammes full of dis­cov­er­ies and in­sights. Our Record­ing of the Month (see right) is a duo al­bum from vi­o­lin­ist Pa­tri­cia Kopatchin­skaja and pi­anist Polina Leschenko, hope­fully the first of many from this pair­ing. Their disc bril­liantly high­lights jux­ta­po­si­tions and con­nec­tions be­tween works from France and Hun­gary. Our In­stru­men­tal Choice is a scin­til­lat­ing solo al­bum from Michael Baren­boim, who ex­plores mu­sic with a dev­il­ish theme from Tar­tini to Scia­r­rino (p145). And turn to our Cham­ber Choice for vi­o­lin­ist Thomas Al­ber­tus Irn­berger and pi­anist Bar­bara Moser’s show­case of un­justly ne­glected com­posers (p140). Beach’s Vi­o­lin Sonata is the cen­tre­piece of a su­perb CD that also in­cludes works by Rönt­gen-maier and Viar­dot-gar­cia.
