American Violin Concertos Ittai Shapira Theodore Wiprud Katrina


“Pictorially vivid . . . Ittai Shapira’s playing is electrifying.”
—The Times of London

“The orchestration is particularly impressive . . . prevents the storm from overwhelming the entire work, which is essential for its ultimate message of hope and redemption.”
—Classical CD Review

“With each listen, I find myself noticing, deep within the music, remnants of strong traditions being eroded away not only by the winds of a storm, but also by the winds of time. In true concerto form and style, he imposes technical demands on both the soloist and the orchestra, while at the same time creating an expressive piece of music that evokes distant and profound memories. Captivating!”
—Classical Music Sentinel
