"BEETHOVEN, BRAHMS, MAHLER" IS AVAIALBLE FOR PRE-PRDER ON ITUNES
“Beethoven , Brahms, Mahler” is the second studio album by the Violin/Piano duo
Chavdar Parashkevov and Natasha Kislenko. It is set to be released worldwide on May 31,
2018, by Chavdar Music. In this album, following the idea of their first critically acclaimed
CD “Russian Sonatas,” the duo recorded well-known compositions for violin and piano
next to newly discovered obscure classical gems.
Two violin and piano sonatas, Beethoven op.30 no.2 in C minor and Brahms op.78 in G
major, form the core of the album. However, the highlight is Adagietto, an ambiguous but
very exceptional arrangement of the slow movement from Mahler’s 5th Symphony (by
Otto Wittenbecher). As a bonus the CD concludes with a live recording of Mahler’s Piano
Quartet, performed together with cellist Louis-Marie Fardet and violist Eliseo Rene
The album was recorded in 2017 in Santa Barbara, CA and later edited and mixed by
Andy Bradley at the Wire Road Recording Studio, Houston, TX. Photography for the CD
cover is taken by Dmitry Rogozhin; thorough and compelling liner notes are written by
Kevin McBrien. To pre-order “Beethoven, Brahms, Mahler” visit iTunes or Amazon.
The duo is planning to promote the CD with series of concerts in Europe and the USA,
starting in the Fall of 2018.
Release date: 05/31/2018

“Chavdar Parashkevov is a Bulgarian violinist whose virtuosity is in no doubt...”
