"Catherine Manoukian numbers among the most promising members of the younger generation of Canadian violinists.  Throughout [she] plays her 1861 Vuillaume as if she were a princess of song." –The Toronto Star

Violinist Catherine Manoukian's third CD features lyrical favorites such as Elgar's "Salut d'amour", Massenet's famous and haunting "Thaïs", Rachmaninoff's "Vocalise", Khachaturian's "Sabre Dance", and music by Tchaikovsky, Vieuxtemps, Babajanian, Tartini and Sayat Nova. Recorded in Japan. An audiophile delight.

Catherine is accompanied on this recording by pianist Satoshi Sando.
