Augustin Hadelich’s sensational debut on Avie Records, Flying Solo (AV 2180), helped catapult him from a highly respected and acclaimed position in the classical music world, into an ever-widening and adoring circle of fans who helped drive the album into the Billboard Classical Chart. Alongside major debuts with the likes of the Cleveland Orchestra and the New York Philharmonic, his UK debut at the Sage Gateshead and return performances with the Los Angeles Philharmonic and Indianapolis Symphony, major feature coverage in The New Yorker, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times and more has propelled Augustin’s media profile to an all-time high.

Echoes of Paris is Augustin’s first chamber recording and casts intriguing connections between Frenchmen Debussy and Poulenc and Russians Prokofiev and Stravinsky, who both flocked to Paris and were heavily influenced by the city’s electric atmosphere and cultural scene. Augustin comments, “I have chosen the four works on this album primarily because they fit so well together … the ‘echoes of Paris’ that tie them together include puppetry, percussion, marches and jazz references.”

Above all it is Augustin’s riveting performance of these striking 20th century works that will captivate and continue to broaden his outstanding reputation.

"...a thoroughly pleasurable disc benefitting from Avie’s typically fine recording and excellent balance."

Andy Fawcett - audiophilia.com - 30 January 2012


"...this disc can’t fail to please lovers of the early 20th-century French and Russian greats... there’s no denying the strength of the performances ...this is a disc to cherish."

Catherine Nelson - The Strad - March 2011


"Sonatas by Poulenc, Debussy and Prokofiev, along with Stravinsky’s earliest copy of the Pulcinella suite, forge a rich programme superbly played by German violinist Augustin Hadelich and his pianist, Robert Kulek. All four composers were associated with Paris, but their different musical languages are perceptively accented here. No matter that Prokofiev wrote his Second Violin Sonata back in Russia: it adds another strand of colour to a winning recital."         *****

Geoffrey Norris -  The Daily Telegraph, 11 February 2011
