"The often-asked question “How could I not have heard them play before?” raised its head again this month when I played Four Centuries, a new CD from pianist Susan Merdinger and violinist David Yonan featuring works by Mozart, Schumann, Bloch and the Chicago-based contemporary composer Ilya Levinson. Both players have impressive résumés, but the Berlin-born Yonan made his recital debut in Berlin, Moscow and St. Petersburg at the age of 11. He also studied with the legendary Dorothy DeLay at Juilliard. He has impeccable technique, a sumptuous tone and a real depth to his playing."

"Four Centuries is a breath-taking duo recording by pianist Susan Merdinger and violinist David Yonan.
Merdinger and Yonan are both masters of their instruments and exceptionally versatile in their repertoires, as this album so clearly demonstrates. Four Centuries is both masterful and compelling, and it is always a thrill to listen to such accomplished musicians. The album is available from iTunes and CD Baby. Recommended!"
“Four Centuries” is a voyage of discovery in a small package of just over 60 minutes. David Yonan’s ultra-refined violin tone and Susan Merdinger’s down-to-earth, firmly centered piano tone complement each other perfectly in a program that ranges from Mozart and Schumann to Ernest Bloch and a thrilling world premiere by Chicago-based composer Ilya Levinson...
