The VC Young Artists LGT Young Soloists have this month announced the release of their second album ‘Russian Soul’ – recorded on the RCA Red Label.
Comprising highly gifted young international string soloists, aged 13 to 22, the acclaimed string ensemble’s new disc includes Rachmaninoff’s ‘Vocalise’ and ‘Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini,’ Tchaikovsky’s ‘Andante Cantabile’ and a fantasy on themes of Rimsky-Korsakov’s opera ‘The Golden Cockerel’.
“Following on from our first release in 2015 of all-Italian works, our new recording’s a great mix of Russian composers … with the main characteristic of the program being the melancholy and sweet sadness of the Russian soul …” Artistic Director Alexander Gilman has told The Violin Channel.
“Our goal is always to show that human and musical maturity are not a question of age … our young soloists perform at a sophisticated emotional level that you would not expect from teens …” he has said.
