Suites & Fantasies
Joo Yeon Sir Violin

May 2017

Korean born British violinist Joo Yeon Sir makes her dazzling debut recording in a programme of suites and fantasies by composers you rarely see on the same album. Schnittke’s nostalgic Suite in an Olden Style is an affectionate tribute to Bach, Britten’s precocious early Suite op 6 is a work of both great virtuosity and stunning individuality whose relative neglect is difficult to fathom. Milhaud’s witty ‘Cinema Fantasy’ from Le Boeuf sur le Toit and Frolov’s sparkling Fantasy on themes from Gershwin’s Porgy & Bess conclude a daring and original programme.
