ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Paul Juon (1872-1940) came from a talented family: an elder sister, Emilie, became a pianist; one of his younger brothers, Konstantin, was a very popular painter in Russia. At age 17, Juon entered the Imperial Moscow Conservatory, studying violin with Jan Hrímalý and composition under both Sergei Taneyev and Anton Arensky. Between 1894-95 he studied at the Berlin Hochschule with the half brother of Clara Schumann, Woldemar Bargiel. He shares the title of “Russian Brahms” with other composers such as Alexander Glazunov, Nikolai Medtner and Sergei Taneyev. Such Russian and German influences provide credibility to this title, allegedly assigned by his conservatory peer, Sergey Rachmaninov. Among Juon’s approximately 100 opuses, chamber music works – especially for violin and piano – are featured most prominently.
Pieces spanning the years 1910-1940 are presented on this world premiere CD. It shows Juon’s development from a young unabashed admirer of Tchaikovsky and Sibelius to the mature and serious voice of the established artist, going his own way, incorporating the cultures that made him who he was.

Fantastic Playing
There are very few opportunities to hear masterfully recorded works by less than household names, of which one might include the composer Paul Juon. A recent recording on Minstrel features a venerable and distinguished Jennifer Orchard accompanied by Igor Kraevsky. This fine violinist, previously of the Lark Quartet and currently the Pittsburgh Symphony, embraces poignantly the embedded subtleties and complexities of Juon’s writing. Her playing, deep and sonorous with exceptional shaping, brings to light the seventeen short pieces on this outstanding presentation. Listen to the Arva, Elegie, and Sarika as just a few examples of sublime musicianship. Hopefully a turning point in the notoriety of this composer. The playing is reminiscent of Szigeti or Grumiaux in recital."
