Musician's or Publisher's Notes

Eugène Ysaÿe was one of the finest violinists in the storied history of the instrument. Like many performers of earlier generations, he wrote a substantial number of works for his own concerts, as well as for his students and friends. This brief fantasy is not only built upon the work of Saint-Saëns, but upon Ysaÿe’s unmatched knowledge of the possibilities of music as it lies in the wood, gut, and hair of the instrument itself.        Notes by Tim Summers
