Russian violinist Dmitry Smirnov's d茅but recording on FHR features works by master baroque composer (J.S. Bach), a leading figure of 20th century music (B茅la Bart贸k) and a wonderful newly discovered work by influential Swiss violinist Hansheinz Schneeberger who died in 2019. The Schneeberger Sonata, written two years before Bart贸k's Sonata, is a violin show piece, displaying much imagination in it's idiomatic and virtoustic violin writing - this is the first recording of the work. There are many connections that link these three works together - the Bart贸k and Schneeberger sonatas show influences of Bach. Also, Bart贸k's First Violin Concerto was premi猫red by Schneeberger. On this album Smirnov plays a modern violin made by Philipp Bonhoeffer (Bart贸k and Schneeberger) and a 1795 Johann Sch枚nfelder violin (Bach).
