ORIGIN, Gwendolyn's new album. Available on CD, at Naxos and digitally on most platforms.
The compositions and improvisations on ORIGIN are those that inspire and have shaped Gwendolyn's identity as a musician and artist. The violinist pays tribute to her multicultural background on the album, calling attention to the musical traditions of Central and Eastern Europe and their connection and influence within the ever-changing world of classical music and traditional folk pieces. Each piece is connected to the next by way of its bravura nature and the tradition of music-making it is inspired by – the dances of Romani people or those of Spain, Jewish melodies and the folk themes of Rumania.
