“The pieces on this disc, Sibelius Violin Concerto, the Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso and Stravinsky’s Duo Concertante are amongst some of my absolute favourite works in the entire repertoire …” Ayana has told The Violin Channel.
“Each was recorded in the live, high-pressure environment of the Montreal competition, so I hope the listeners are able to feel the feverish excitement of the concert hall,” she has said.
