Reviews

International Record Review

Few current violinists can claim as wide a repertoire and as active a policy of commissioning as Sheppard Skærved, and the present disc offers an excellent and often surprising overview of his solo repertoire. A varied and stimulating collection then, recorded with due appreciation of Sheppard Skærved’s incisive clarity – a trait equally apparent in his informative booklet note.

Strings Magazine

Skærved has more than risen to the challenge, and no inadequacies are exposed by his recording of Etude Philharmonique and other works by Henze, Naji Hakim, David Matthews, and Dmitri Smirnov. He demonstrates that, in the right hands, the solo violin can evoke a remarkable range of moods and colors.
