Alpha Records announced the release of VC Artist Kerson Leong's new album, "Ysaÿe: Six Sonatas For Solo Violin."

"It's clear that the Ysaÿe sonatas are a staple of the solo violin repertoire, but these pieces, perhaps more than any other in this medium, have captured my imagination and resonated with me in an especially personal way," Kerson told The Violin Channel.

"After having performed the entire sonata cycle several times in concert, it was inevitable that I would record it.

"I wish for listeners to forget about the notion of technique and even about the instrument itself, only to be immersed in a sound world full of emotional depth and vivid atmospheres that could be brought out of these pieces."
