Takayoshi Wanami. Eugène Ysaÿe was the leader of the tonalist movement in violin playing in Western Europe at the turn of the twentieth century. Each of the works on this CD is profoundly different from the other, and they contain the gamut of virtuoso violin techniques. Wanami gets under the skin of Ysaÿe's six subjects like no one heard before. Wanami is a sensation -- this disc has received top recommendation from American Record Guide.
