My Dusty Gramophone


Debut solo album by Dunja Lavrova with Solo Musica. 

Colourful selection of violin encores, featuring the familiar, the forgotten and the rare. 

“My Dusty Gramophone”  is not an ordinary album. 

It was recorded in the style of mid-20th century: in live takes, with minimum reverb, on vintage equipment, mastered on analog tape. 

Typical to the style of old studio records, the microphones were set up very close to the instrument which allows the listener to get up-close-and-personal with Dunja.

The album, which includes 19 tracks in variety of styles, takes you on a trip through Dunja's musical heritage and memories whilst bringing the sound of the old records to the modern world.

Worldwide distribution by Naxos. Available on CD (AmazonMDT among many others) and by digital download (ITunesAmazonquobuz.com etc)
