Renowned British violinist and pedagogue Simon Smith makes his Resonus debut with an extraordinary disc of intensely virtuosic works for unaccompanied violin by two Hungarian composers – the late Sonata for Solo Violin by Belá Bartók and Signs, Games & Messages by living composer György Kurtág, who recently celebrated his 90th birthday in 2016.

The idiomatic and skilful writing for solo violin by both of these composers shows the immense range possible on this instrument, taking the performer to the edge of what’s possible. Often lyrical and expressive, often dramatic and atmospheric with folk influences, Simon Smith tackles this repertoire with great dedication and panache.

‘The pairing of Kurtag’s Signs, Games & Messages from the 1980s with Bartok’s Sonata for Solo Violin of 1944 makes for very interesting listening. […] All of this is music that inspires repeated listening. A genre that has much to be explored.’ –Lark Reviews
