Great Violins, volume 2 - the Bull Amati

Ole Bull was a celebrated, almost legendary, Norwegian violinist. After his death his prized Nicolo Amati was lost into private collections, but has been located after well over a hundred years. Peter Sheppard Skærved plays this amazing instrument (made when Stradivarius was a pupil of Amati) in a reconstruction of one of Bull's recitals - historically invaluable. With pianist Roderick Chadwick on some tracks.

He is he composer of the music for many TV series, including Midsomer Murders and Foyle's War among others. This album of his 'pure' music for chamber ensemble shows a wonderful gift for melodic, lyrical and thoroughly tonal music in the Englisgh light music tradition. Soloists and the Solem Quartet produce fine performances too.
