Singles & Doubles

Friends working together: help support "Singles & Doubles: Haydn and Mendelssohn Concertos," featuring a newly discovered Mendelssohn Double Concerto full orchestra version recording with the Slovak National Symphony.

We are a group of musicians driven by a passion to bring beautiful classical compositions to the world. We are Antonio Pompa-Baldi, Italian-American pianist, winner of the Cleveland competition (1999), top prize winner of Van Cliburn (2001) and Marguerite Long-Jacques Thibaud (1998) competitions; Solomiya Ivakhiv, Ukrainian-American violinist, Head of Strings at the University of Connecticut and Professor of Violin at the Longy School of Music of Bard College; Theodore Kuchar, internationally renowned American conductor, Music Director of the Reno Chamber Orchestra, conductor Laureate of the National Symphony of Ukraine.

This November, we will be recording three little-known compositions together with the Slovak National Symphony:
• J. Haydn Concerto for Violin, Piano and Strings in F Major
• F. Mendelssohn Concerto for Violin, Piano and Orchestra in D minor (newly discovered)
• F. Mendelssohn Concerto for solo Violin and Strings in D minor
