This first recording of the complete works for violin and piano is certain to receive an enthusiastic reception.

William Bolcom, one of America's most innovative and original composers had an interest in the violin from a young age. This complete collection spans his entire career. We hear his early experimental works through the chromaticism of the 1970's up to the neo-Classical leanings of the 1990s. This music is perhaps the most important contribution by an American composer to the violin and piano repertoire.

Review:
"This is extraordinarily virtuosic music that Ficsor and Finehouse play brilliantly. ...For Bolcom fans - and their number is undoubtedly growing with releases like thsi one - this is a must-have. Gorgeous playing, gorgeous recording, gorgeous music." (Scott Morrison)

"How remarkable it is...to be able to experience an album such as The Bolcom Project -- recorded by two consummate young artists..." (Classical CD Review) "The unostentatious virtuosity of William Bolcom's beautifully managed Suite for Solo Violin makes a perfect vehicle for...Phillip Ficsor..." (The Strad)
