  Featured Album


Heinrich Wilhelm ERNST: Music for Violin and Orchestra

This new CD presents an appealing cross-section of Ernst’s own music, and should certainly raise the profile of a violin genius whose name is now seldom heard. It is performed by the award-winning violinist Ilya Grubert, who plays a 1740 Guarnieri violin once owned by Henryk Wieniawski.

Fantaisie Brillante sur la Marche et la Romance d’Otello de Rossini, Op. 11; Concerto in F sharp minor, Op. 23 (Concerto Allegro-Pathétique); Elégie sur la mort d’un objet chéri, Op. 10; Concertino in D major, Op. 12; Rondo Papageno, Op. 20
