Debut Release from BU Violinist
An internationally-acclaimed musician and teacher at BU has released her debut album, exploring themes of European folk tunes and Romanticism. Violinist Kerry DuWors joins forces with pianist Futaba Niekawa in the group duo526 to present BALLADE.
Released through Navona Records, BALLADE features violin sonatas by composers Leoš Janácek, George Enescu, and Edvard Grieg.
“These pieces are rarely performed together,” says DuWors. “The selections are extremely musical, highlighting sustained vibrato, harmonic sensitivity, rhythmic spontaneity, as well as precision. I think listeners will find the album is very powerful.”
