Violinist Solomiya Ivakhiv shares her passion for the music of Felix Mendelssohn in a radiant new recording of two rarely-heard gems: the Violin Concerto in D minor and the Violin and Piano Concerto. These are two striking examples of the precocious talent of the young Mendelssohn. Joining Ivakhiv for the double concerto is the award-winning pianist Antonio Pompa-Baldi, and both works feature the Slovak National Symphony Orchestra under conductor Theodore Kuchar.
