James Ehnes presents his third disc of chamber works by Bartók. The previous volumes have, along with his outstanding concerto disc, established his formidable reputation as a Bartók interpreter. In this diverse program, the Sonatina (1915) is heard together with the eclectic Forty-four Duos for two violins and Contrasts, a dazzling work full of exuberant virtuosity, in which he is joined by Michael Collins, renowned as one of the world’s leading clarinetists.
