Swedish violinist Christian Svarfvar has emerged as one of Scandinavia’s most sought after soloists. He is equally at home as a soloist with orchestra as with giving recitals. His creative and exciting approach to concert programming, paired with the passion and energy he brings to musical interaction, marks Svarfvar as one of the most captivating voices of his generation. On his first album for Rubicon, Svarfar features one of the best loved of all 19th century concertos, Max Bruch’s evergreen Violin Concerto No. 1. Wilhelm Stenhammar’s warmly romantic Violin Sonata and Sentimental Romances complete the recording.
