Yevgeny Kutik, a young Russian violinist living in Canada, raised the money for his debut album through a kickstart campaign, helped on its way by Slipped Disc. Yevgeny, 24, fascinated by the persistence of faith in times of adversity, has titled his album Sounds of Defiance. It contains works by Shostakovich, Schnittke and Pärt – as well as this astonishing Hebrew Lullaby by Joseph Achron. The pianist is Timothy Bozarth.
The disc is out next month on Marquis Music label. Here’s the free download. Enjoy.
