The New York Times hailed Maria Bachmann as "a violinist of soul and patrician refinement", and The Boston Globe as "astonishing in every musical and technical regard." Maria Bachmann studied at The Curtis Institute of Music with Ivan Galamian and Szymon Goldberg, and was awarded Curtis's Fritz Kreisler Prize. Mr. Neiman has performed as soloist with the symphony orchestras of Belgrade, Chicago, Cincinnati, Dallas, Detroit, Houston, Indianapolis, Minnesota, Saint Louis, San Francisco, and is a highly-acclaimed recitalist. This recording presents the duo performing a collection of French masterpieces by Debussy, Franck and Saint-Saëns.



Vivacious, virtuosic, and sincere, these performances give us a kind of grand epoch sensibility in our own salon, vividly translated into the recorded medium by Adam Abeshouse.” - Audiophile Audition

Quite simply, this is an outstanding disc, and one that will captivate you.” - Fanfare
