Patricia Kopatchinskaja, Emilia Kopatchinskaja violin Viktor Kopatchinski cimbalom Amy Yang piano Maria Krykov double bass Enescu Menetrier from ‘Impressions des Enfance’ for solo violin Calusarii Moldavian Folk Music Doina and Hora Moldavian Folk Music Gyorgy Kurtag 8 Duos for Violin and Cimbalom, Op.4 Ravel Tzigane Enescu Sonata No.3 Ciocarlia Moldavian Folk Music Patricia Kopatchinskaja is joined by her parents – former members of the Moldovan national state folk ensemble – to play the irresistible music of their homeland. It’s an instrumental tradition whose rapid shifts, constant syncopations and complex cross-rhythms seem to tug the carpet away from under your feet even as you dance on it. It forms an illuminating framework for folk influenced classical violin works, from the gypsy swagger of Ravel’s Tzigane to Enescu’s devilishly potent sonata. Britten Studio, Snape
