Name: Hartmann - Miniatures
  for violine and Piano

Arthur Hartmann (1881–1956) was a Philadelphia-born violinist and composer – though he claimed he came from Hungary – whose Kreisler-like salon miniatures for violin and piano were once the toast of violinists everywhere. He was also a close friend of Debussy, a number of whose piano pieces he transcribed, performing them in Paris with the composer. This first recording of Hartmann’s charming pieces restores a forgotten but immediately attractive corner of the violin repertoire.
