cover cd duo jalef

First album of the brilliant duo. It is hardly possible to listen to Béla Bartók’s works for violin without evoking, with some nostalgia, the brilliant generation of Hungarian violinists who saw these works come into being: an exceptional school marked by the names of Zoltán Székely or Jelly d’Arányi. To these exemplary personalities, however, must be added the many peasant violinists whom Bartók heard during his wanderings in the countryside – amateur musicians who let their love of music burst forth with naïve sincerity, in spite of rough mannered and clumsy accuracy due to calloused hands and makeshift instruments.
