The compositions of Elisabeth Kuyper are once again finding their proper place in music collections and the modern performing repertoire. The sonata and concerto for violin on this recording evoke comparisons to those of Bruch, Dvorak, Vieuxtemps, Lalo, and Saint Saens. Yet her mentor Max Bruch described Kuyper's compositions as "...notable for their independent inspiration, beauty of form and forceful melody."
Lost in the archives for almost 100 years, Elisabeth Kuyper's powerful Concerto in B Minor for Violin and Orchestra, opus 10 is brought back to life in this modern premiere by soloist Aleksandra Maslovaric and the Brno Philharmonic led by Mikel Toms.
Completing the presentation of the composer's works for violin, violinist Aleksandra Maslovaric and pianist Tamara Rumiantsev partner to perform Elisabeth Kuyper's Sonata for Violin and Piano, opus 1, recorded in historic Middelburg, The Netherlands.
