OUT NOW | Violinist Jack Liebeck's New CD: 'Schoenberg & Brahms' [LISTEN]

Orchid Classics Records has announced the release of British violinist Jack Liebeck's new album: 'Schoenberg & Brahms'

Orchid Classics Records has this month announced the release of British violinist Jack Liebeck's new album: 'Schoenberg & Brahms'.

Recorded with conductor Andrew Gourlay and the BBC Symphony Orchestra, the disc features the violin concertos of Arnold Schoenberg and Johannes Brahms.

"Now coming into my 40th year two things have come into focus for me, one of them is that I have become more and more interested in where my desire to make music came from - and the other is that I’m increasingly worried about where we are going as a civilisation, seemingly having forgotten the lessons of the past ..." Jack has this week told The Violin Channel.

"The lucky ones in my Jewish family managed to flee the Nazi’s from Holland and Germany to South Africa in the 1930s and 40s ... my grandfather, Walter Liebeck, in particular was a very fine amateur violinist and left for South Africa in 1934, his favourite piece was Brahms Violin Concerto ... I have been feeling his presence more and more in my playing in recent years (especially when performing in the great halls in Germany, he would have been very excited!) so now seems the time to record the great masterwork with him in my mind ..." he has said.

"The Schoenberg Violin Concerto (1936) was written just after the composer, like my grandfather, had to flee the Nazi’s from Germany to California in 1933 ... this seemed to be the perfect coupling to tell my family story -and to remember how lucky we really are to be alive and free now.”
