Heinrich Wilhelm Ernst (1812-65) was one of the leading musicians of his day, a friend of Berlioz, Chopin, Liszt and Mendelssohn, and for Joseph Joachim 'the greatest violinist I ever heard'.

But the popular encore pieces by which Ernst is remembered today represent only a fraction of his output: this third CD - in a series of seven presenting all his compositions for the first time - shows the full range of his creativity and charm.

The Élégie sur la mort d'un objet chéri is written in his most moving and melancholy vein, and the Airs hongrois variés push the virtuoso violin to its absolute limits.

Between these extremes lie the lyricism of the Pensées fugitives, the inventiveness of his treatment of two Halévy operas and the high spirits of his fantasy on a Strauss waltz.

The first two volumes in this series have been received with glowing critical approval: Vol. 1 earned an 'Editor's Choice in Gramophone and in Fanfare Robert Maxham praised Vol. 2 for its 'exceptional notes by Mark Rowe [and...] stunning performances of works both familiar and unfamiliar by violinist Sherban Lupu and pianist Ian Hobson'.
