Champs Hill Records has announced the release of American violinist, VC Young Artist Nathan Meltzer's new CD: "To Roman Totenberg''.

Nathan currently performs on the 1734 ‘Ames/Totenberg’ Stradivarius violin, on generous loan from Rare Violins of New York's "In Consortium".

"My inspiration for the repertoire for this CD came from the violin on which I recorded on. I tried to be mindful of the pieces that Roman Totenberg championed throughout his career and programed those pieces as well as pieces that match my sensibilities as a performer as well,'' Nathan this week said.

"This is the first time that the violin has been recorded since its theft from Roman Totenberg fifty years ago. So on top of the excitement of being my first CD, it’s a monumental moment for the instrument as well. And hopefully, my excitement in this is noticeable in the recording!'' he said.
