BIS Records has this week announced the release of violinist, VC Young Artist Johan Dalene's new CD: 'Tchaikovsky & Barber Violin Concertos'.
Recorded with conductor Daniel Blendulf and the Norrköping Symphony Orchestra, the disc features Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto in D Major – coupled with Barber's Violin Concerto Op. 14.
”The Tchaikovsky and Barber Concertos are pieces I truly love …” Johan has told The Violin Channel.
“Being my first ever recording, I wanted to play pieces that I had performed a lot and being able to record these two fantastic violin concertos is a dream come true …'” the 2019 Carl Nielsen International Violin Competition 1st prize winner has said.
”I hope the listener can hear what I find so great about these concertos … the warmth and depth in Barber’s music is spellbinding whilst Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto is virtuosic, romantic – and full of charm and humour.”
