OUT NOW | Itamar Zorman’s Latest Launch, “Violin Odyssey”


Israeli violinist Itamar Zorman has not too long ago launched his new album Violin Odyssey on First Hand Data. The disc has come out of a lockdown mission entitled “Hidden Gems,” which noticed Zorman seek for lesser-known repertoire and report it in a sequence of video performances.

The “Odyssey” component of the album’s title refers back to the big selection of places from which the music derives: there are works from Sudan, China, Russia, Poland, Croatia, Czech Republic, Israel, Mexico, and New Zealand, in addition to the US.

A number of of the works even have some sort of reference to Zorman himself. One in all these is Wanderings, a piece by Zorman’s father Moshe Zorman, whereas the inclusion of Joseph Achron‘s Youngsters’s Suite serves as a nod to the time Zorman was in a position to spend along with his younger daughter throughout a COVID-19 lockdown.

The 2011 winner of the Tchaikovsky Competitors and a 2013 recipient of the Avery Fisher Profession Grant, Itamar Zorman was born in Tel Aviv and studied in Israel, the US, and Germany. He has carried out as a soloist with the Mariinsky Orchestra, Israel Philharmonic, and the New World Symphony, amongst others. Violin Odyssey is his third album and is supported by the Borletti-Buitoni Belief.
