Description: Balkan music for violin and piano offered mainly for the two-movement, 11-minute sonata by Zadeja (19782-74) which may be the first Albaninan composition we've offered since taking over RI in 1997. Skalkottas' Petite Suite combines serialism with Greek folk rhythms and Vrebalov's 9:43 Meditations summons the world of Orthodox chant. Miroslav Hristov (violin), Vladimir Valjarevic (piano).
