Orfeo Records has this month announced the release of Latvian violin virtuoso Baiba Skride’s new album: American Concertos.
Recorded with conductor Santtu-Matias Rouvali and the Gothenburg Symphony and the Tampere Philharmonic, the disc features Bernstein's Serenade - plus the violin concertos of Erich Wolfgang Korngold and Miklos Rozsa.
"I truly love playing diverse repertoire ... and I really wanted to combine a recording of these 3 beautiful, but not regularly heard concertos ..." Baiba has told The Violin Channel.
"All three concertos have enormous power and their own unique musical language ... yet still all compliment each other perfectly ..." she has said.
"I am hoping listeners will fall in love with the genius complexity, beauty and strength of each of these superb American virtuoso works."
