OUT NOW | VC Young Artist Jonian Ilias Kadesha's New CD: "A Journey for Two"

Recorded with cellist Vashti Hunter and inspired by folk music, the disc features pieces by Xenakis, Kodály, Honegger, and Skalkottas

Avi Music Records announced the release of VC Young Artist Jonian Ilias Kadesha's new album entitled "A Journey for Two."

"Our recording centers around pieces which celebrate the joy and vibrancy of folk music, opening with music by Xenakis from the Balkans in Greece, Jonian’s birthplace, then venturing north to Hungary for the Kodaly, west to Switzerland/France for the Sonatina by Honneger and finally returning to Greece for a rarely performed duo by Skalkottas," cellist Vashti Hunter told The Violin Channel.

"We are both in love with folk music, particularly from the Balkans, and hope to pass on some of the joy it brings us when playing it!

"We wanted to conjure up the excitement of a live performance where risk-taking and spontaneity were fully embraced. Particularly during this crazy time, where it is not necessarily possible to attend a concert, it is more essential than ever to communicate a ‘live’ energy and joy to the listener. We also hope that we might help throw some limelight onto the lesser-played pieces on the disc, such as the Skalkottas and Honegger — they definitely deserve to be played more often!"
