All the works on this recording were written by composers who themselves played the violin. Their intimate knowledge of the instrument is clearly evident in the music. The works are all very different, but each is expressive and idiomatic and the violin and viola have equal voices. Elise Båtnes appears as a soloist with leading orchestras and conductors around the world.
