Violinist Sergiu Luca, a former student of Rostal and Galamian, was one of the pioneers of period instrument performance. He died in 2010, and this 2004 recording is a rare document of Mr Luca’s mastery of the Romantic violin repertoire, the famous “FAE Sonata” being an all-time favourite. He is accompanied by pianist Brian Connelly, who uses an 1840 Streicher fortepiano.
