NAXOS TO RELEASE VIRTUOSO VIOLIN MUSIC OF IVAN YEVSTAFYEVICH KHANDOSHKIN MAY 16th

Works by 18th Century Russian Virtuoso and Catherine the Great’s Kapellmeister

Ivan Khandoshkin (1747-1804) was not only the first great Russian violin virtuoso but was also, as Anne Mischakoff Heiles points out in her liner notes to this CD, “one of the most remarkable composers in the first century of Russia’s secular musical life.”  A student of Tito Porta, he was an apprentice in the St. Petersburg Imperial Court Orchestra and later became the court violinist and Kapellmeister for Catherine the Great, performing music bristling with hair-raising pyrotechnics.

Many of Khandoshkin’s lovely works, such as the Old Russian Songs for Violin, employ folk themes that have inspired generations of Russian composers.  Three violin sonatas by the composer also appear on this CD.

Ivan Yevstafyevich KHANDOSHKIN (1747-1804):

Virtuoso Music at the Court of Catherine the Great

Anastasia Khitruk, violin; Dimitri Yakubovski,viola; Kirill Yevtushenko (cello)
