Milan Paľa is one of Slovakia’s most outstanding violinists. His artistic engagements are universal and his repertoire is large, with works from early musical periods to the avant-garde. Besides performing as a soloist, he is also engaged in chamber music. Paľa’s artistic creativity shows itself in the encouragement of new compositions for violin and viola. It is due to his effort that the project of recording the complete Slovak solo violin repertoire was launched. Altogether, 5 double-albums are the fruit of his encouragement, which required much time and included research work that started in 2009. The anthology is a unique publishing project within Slovak music and it pushes Slovak violin music forward into a world-wide context by its quality. The presented works clearly show the composers and their solutions and how the social and political events influenced their thinking and the esthetics of our country. The double-albums cover a wide spectrum of different types of compositions: student works, didactic pieces for children, works with refined stylistic features of musical thinking by the composers, and timeless works. The high quality of interpretation and the way of presenting these works on CD offer an unusual and complete experience for listeners.
