Di Tanti Palpiti
Lea Birringer Violin

RCD 1034
September 2019

In contrast to their debut album of sonatas by Franck & Grieg (RCD1007), violinist Lea Birringer with her pianist sister Esther offer a sparkling virtuosic recital of some of the most famous showpieces for violin and piano in the repertoire. From serious to light-hearted, these works are a test of a violinist’s technical prowess as well as being great fun to listen to – especially when performed with such artistry as displayed on this new album.
