The works on the album will include Messiaen Theme and Variations, Schubert Rondo in B minor, D 895, Chausson Poème, Op. 25, Hindemith Sonata for violin solo, Op. 31 No. 1, and Brahms Violin Sonata in D minor, Op. 108.
According a press release, Portrait is based upon Zorman's personal reflections.
“From the beginning, it was clear to me that the repertoire for my debut album needed to reflect what I believe in as a musician. Choosing pieces that are particularly close to my heart seemed the most natural and honest way of introducing myself. Schubert and Brahms are two of my favorite composers,” Zorman says.
