Description: A prolific Estonian composer with more than a hundred works to his credit already, Kerem is also a performing violinist. His first two sonatas are the works of, respectively, a 13-year-old and a 15-year-old (one on-line review notes that the Second sounds is like a more mature re-write of the First), both of them combining a Prokofievian steely quality in their energetic scherzos with contemplative, sometimes brooding slow movements (each is slow-fast-slow). The Third (2006) begins with its motoric scherzo and follows it with two movements full of haunting tension and meditative expressiveness. Mikk Murdvee (violin), Sten Lassmann (piano).
