Genuin Classics has announced the release of violinist, VC Young Artist Ioana Cristina Goicea‘s new album: ‘Romantic Exuberance‘.
Recorded with pianist Andrei Banciu, the disc features Richard Strauss’ Violin Sonata in E-Flat Major, Korngold’s ‘Much Ado About Nothing’ Suite – and Romanian composer Stan Golestan’s (1875-1956) Violin Sonata in E-Flat Major.
“Our initial aim with this disc was to really bring wider attention to the wonderful violin sonata of Romanian-Jewish composer Stan Golestan … it’s an incredibly beautiful and rich work …” Ioana has told The Violin Channel.
“We then set about pairing it with some equally fantastic violin and piano sonatas – with the real hope of creating something uniquely special …” the 2017 Michael Hill International Violin Competition 1st prize winner has said.
“Hopefully our listeners will be able to appreciate our vision and interpretations of these masterworks.”
