Steinhardt & Mayorga
Violin & Piano

The turn of the century masterworks featured on this CD focuses on several composers who, in the 50 years spanning parts of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries composed a large body of music to evoke the elements of emotion and beauty on a very personal, intimate level.   These tender, supremely recorded masterworks offer the listener an opportunity to experience the music of the nineteenth century salon, where a composer was considered successful when his music brought a trace of a smile to the lips or a tear to the eye.   This is the second of a two CD series set featuring Arnold Steinhardt and Lincoln Mayorga.
