Analekta Records has announced the release of 23-year-old Canadian violinist, VC Young Artist Blake Pouliot’s debut album ‘Ravel-Debussy: Sonates'.
Recorded with internationally acclaimed pianist Hsin-I Huang, the disc features Ravel's 2nd Violin Sonata and 'Tzigane' plus Debussy's Violin Sonata and 'Beau Soir'.
“Hsin-I and I chose this repertoire because we've discovered that playing French music evokes a specific sense of enjoyment and curiosity in us both ... so we were keen to explore the sounds, colours and textures in these innately rich and complex masterpieces ..." Blake has told The Violin Channel.
“These composers left us with outstanding pieces for all of our enjoyment ... and we’re just thrilled we got the opportunity to experience all the intricacies that this music has to offer,” he has said.
