Berlin CD launch for Kashkashian/Levin

“Asturiana – Songs from Spain and Argentina”, the new CD by Kim Kashkashian and Robert Levin, will be presented in a special release concert in Berlin’s Radialsystem V on October 20. Kashkashian and Levin will be playing their own transcriptions of songs by Enrique Granados, Carlos Gustavino, Alberto Ginastera, Manuel de Falla and others. First critical reactions are full of praise: “It almost sounds as if Kashkashian is singing”, says Marc Geelhoed in Time Out Chicago. “Her viola occasionally takes on the overtones of a human voice...while Levin’s accompanying is unfailingly sensitive. His deep intellectual investment allows him to go as deep into the music as Kashkashian does.” The Boston Globe, meanwhile, hails Kashkashian as “probably the world’s greatest violist”.
