Description: Godowsky wrote violin pieces? Well, sort of. The Impressions are mostly from various of Godowsky's piano-piece cycles fingered and bowed by Kreisler and the Waltz Poems had the same done by Godowsky's violinist son. So - attractive, high-quality salon music is what you're getting here and what's wrong with that? Nazrin Rashidova (violin), Roderick Chadwick (piano).
