    GEORGE ROCHBERG: Violin Sonata - Peter Sheppard Skærved and Aaron Shorr
    Caprice Variations - Peter Sheppard Skærved (solo violin
    An immense and magnificent set of variations by American composer George Rochberg, not just, as the title may suggest, on Paganini's famous 24th Caprice, but incorporating styles and forms "borrowed" from many other composers, such as Mahler, Brahms, Busoni, Schubert and Beethoven! The work is played on the renowned "Habeneck" Stradivarius violin of 1734. Violinist Peter Sheppard Skærved is a virtuoso of the first order and a regular Metier recording artist. Aaron Shorr joins in for the world premiere recording of Rochberg's Violin Sonata in a stunning live performance.
