Description: Being undoubtedly the most popular Danish violinist ever, Tworek was just as at home in the standard classical repertoire as he was in the fiery violinistic acrobatics he entertained his adoring audiences with all over Denmark. From the remarkable authoritative recording of the Bartok solo violin sonata to lollipops of the lighter vein, Wandy, as the Danes knew him, never failed to impress. 2 CDs. Wandy Tworek (violin) and various accompaniments.
