Homburger, Maya: Lysandra + Sonata In C-dur + Partita In E-dur (Maya)
Label: Maya    
Released in: Ireland    

"Lysandra completes the set of three solo violin pieces written at the request of Maya Homburger to sit in between J. S. Bach's masterpieces, the Sonatas and Partitas for solo violin. Deliberately avoided is any paraphrasing of Bach's music, preferring to keep the language consistent with a pure research of the warm colours of the baroque violin and the intense expression associated with the instrument. Lysandra represents a somewhat more dramatic conclusion to the three pieces. Certain "leitmotivs" and techniques from the two previous pieces are alluded to, but within a more robust assertive scenario. Perhaps the summation of this more heroic stance is the inclusion of a fugato that tests the faculties of the violinist's art and expresses my admiration for the master J.S. Bach and the player's ability to thrill the listener with athletic flights of virtuosity."-Barry Guy
