Rachel Kolly D'Alba's Passion Ysa˙e released on 3rd May
Warner Classics and Jazz is delighted to announce the release of Passion Ysa˙e
, Swiss virtuoso Rachel Kolly D'Alba
's recording of Eugčne Ysa˙e's revolutionary Six Sonatas, which are regarded as a fundamental marking-point in modern composition for the violin, and an inspiring and thrilling technical challenge which can only be pulled off by the most accomplished of violinists.
Kolly D’Alba, who has consistently performed with distinction in the numerous awards, festivals and competitions she has participated in – winning first prize many times – is more than a match for this challenge. A thrilling technical odyssey, the works exploit every aspect of the violin in full, changing, in her own words, “from a butterfly to a bird to a church-bell” and impress the endless expressive possibilities, colours and flexibilities of the instrument.
The album will be available from all good retailers from May 3rd 2010.
