The newest release by the multi-award-winning Russian violinist Roman Mints is ‘Dance of Shadows,’ featuring an innovative program of music by Ysaÿe, Piazzolla, Schnittke, Silvestrov and a world premiere by Dobrinka Tabakova. Critically-acclaimed for his previous recordings on the Quartz label and ECM Records, Mints has been praised for his “interpretative virtuosity in revealing diverse stylistic worlds” (The Strad) as well as the “deep feeling and glowing purity” in his playing (BBC Music Magazine).
