The young violinist Lena Neudauer captivated the international classical music scene with her recording of Schumann’s Complete Works for Violin and Orchestra (order no. 93.258). 

On her new recording, she tackles the incredibly demanding violin works of Maurice Ravel. Accompanied by Paul Rivinius (piano) Lena Neudauer delivered a wonderful inspired interpretation of Ravel’s complete works for violin and piano
Especially noteworthy is Neudauer’s interpretation of the rarely performed "Habanera" - not to be confused with "Pièce en forme de Habanera", originally a vocal etude that Ravel himself arranged for violin and piano. The current "Habanera" was composed in 1895 for two pianos, and later published together with "Entre cloches" under the title "Sites auriculaires" before ultimately being orchestrated to become as the third part of his "Rapsodie espagnole." The current version is from the hand of Fritz Kreisler - a unique listening experience of an exceptionally well-travelled little piece!
For the recording of the sonata for violin and violoncello Julian Steckel (winner of the ARD music competition and the ECHO Klassik) is the congenial partner of Lena Neudauer.

"... Recommended with special warmthand enthusiasm."

Robert Maxham - Fanfare - JUly/August 2013

 "Beautifully coloured and sensitive playing. Neudauer responds with idiomatic flair to the gorwing virtuosity of Tzigane, the withdrawn world of the Sonata with cello, and all points between."  *****

Martin Cotton - BBC Music magazine (Brief Notes Section) - August 2013

"... this collection has an admirable completeness and the performances are first rate."

                             The Strad Recommends

"The young German-born violinist Lena Neudauer has here laid down what is my new benchmark for recorded performances of the two Ravel violin sonatas. Both works thrive on the multitude of subtle colours and nuances that she brings to the music, and her tempos and shaping of phrases have a natural flow that speaks of a soloist at one with the composer... Both scores call for an equally outstanding pianist, and in Paul Rivinius she has a superb partner who accommodates her every rhythmic twist and turn, and is technically superb... There are certainly more overtly virtuosic accounts of Tzigane on disc, but none played with greater accuracy, and it is refreshing to hear such engaging performances of the shorter works on the CD. Balance and sound quality are admirable."

David Denton - The Strad - May 2013
