Perhaps no other form of music demands a higher concentration of forces as chamber music. However once it is achieved, and the musicians have accomplished a unity of heart and mind, chamber music can truly become a fascination. Duo Natalia, founded by violinist Natalia van der Mersch and pianist Natalia Kovalzon, has achieved a harmony far beyond their identical first names. In 2018 Duo Natalia released their first album, La Folia, with works by Arcangelo Corelli, Johann Sebastian Bach, Franz Schubert, Antonín Dvořák, Bela Bartók, Henryk Wieniawski and John Williams. The present recording dedicated to great Russian musicians such as Tchaikovsky, Glinka, Rubinstein, Rachmaninoff and Stravinsky.
