With their new GENUIN CD, the Duo TschoppBovino is presenting something you do not come across every day – two musicians on three instruments! Mirjam Tschopp features successively as both violinist and violist in Dmitri Shostakovich’s two late sonatas. Maybe this is why she and her piano partner Riccardo Bovino play with such incredible unity? The spectral sounds of the slow movements and relentless marcatos of the fast movements are guaranteed to give us goose bumps. Listening to them, it is no wonder that Shostakovich occupies a totally unique position in 20th century music – at the edge of the speakable and tangible, at the edge of the world of sound…

The French Magazine published a review of the new CD by the Duo TschoppBovino. ResMusica, 28.11.16, Jean-Luc Caron

Audiophile Audition
"These are outstanding performances of a repertoire that will never be a crowd favorite. (...) It should be mentioned that the sound engineering on this recording is of the highest merit, and the viola of Ms. Schopp is one of the most expressive instruments that I have had the pleasure of hearing."
