Endri Nini & Friederike Starkloff

Sonate fur Violine und Klavier 1913-1923
Erwin Schulhoff, Claude Debussy, George Antheil, Leoš Janáček

Experience a captivating juxtaposition of four distinct and mesmerizing compositions spanning a mere decade on the GENUIN CD recorded by violinist Friederike Starkloff and pianist Endri Nini. The duo has compiled works from 1913 to 1923 by Erwin Schulhoff, Claude Debussy, George Antheil, and Leoš Janáček —echoes of an era characterized by tumultuous innovation and pioneering spirit where artists across all genres laid the foundations for modernity. Starkloff, who embarked on her career as the youngest first concertmaster of a German radio orchestra, and Nini, esteemed internationally as a chamber musician, breathe life into these extraordinary, kaleidoscopic compositions with unparalleled intensity and technical mastery.

…the duo finds a delicate approach towards the works [Beethoven, Brahms and Schmann], which reveals also a certain vulnerability and sensibility…Antoaneta Emanuilova and Endri Nini energetically throw themselves into this pulsating flow of music, never losing their attention to every detail.

NDR Kultur

These two musicians work so well together that their performance matches the best I have heard over these many years. Their balances of phrasing and volume bring out the conversa tional aspect of this remarkable romantic music in a highly enjoyable and intimate way.
