Oehms Classics has this week announced the release of Austrian violin virtuoso, Benjamin Schmid‘s new album Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto & Dvořák Romance.
Recorded with conductor Tibor Bogányi and the Pannon Philharmonic Orchestra, the disc features the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto and Dvořák’s Romance in F Minor.
“I have been performing the Tchaikovsky Concerto for more than 3 decades and now that I am playing on the truly fantastic 1718 ex-Viotti Stradivarius violin, I felt the timing was right to make my recording of this magnificent warhorse …” Benjamin has told The Violin Channel.
“I hope that I am able to offer the listeners a fresh perspective on these two violin masterworks … and hopefully they can take away some inspiration and joy from the magnificence and perfection that is this Strad,” he has said.
