Info zu Doppelgänger
Michael Vaiman writes of this new release: Each great musical composition acquires new facets and colors when the composer creates a new version of this composition for another instrument. Bach's concertos or his other works are vivid examples of this. When we talk about new versions created by the composers themselves, it is not just that doppelgangers that are born. I think that the composer, sometimes consciously, sometimes intuitively, felt that in this music there is potential, which in the new version gives this creation a new life. All the works recorded on this album certainly belong to this category. Michael Vaiman was born in Ukraine. After graduating from the distinguished Stolyarsky School of Music in his hometown, he studied at the Tchaikovsky Conservatory of Music in Moscow under legendary violinist David Oistrakh and Semyon Snitkovsky. Especially noteworthy is the unusual range of his repertoire, which includes all violin sonatas by Beethoven, Brahms, Prokofiev, Franck, and Schumann and also all of Schuberts and Shostakovichs compositions for violin and orchestra. Vaiman is also the first performer of a number of works from modern composers.
