Brilliant Classics has announced the release of Ukrainian-born violinist Solomiya Ivakhiv‘s new album: ‘Mendelssohn‘.
Recorded with pianist Antonio Pompa-Baldi, conductor Theodore Kuchar and the Slovak National Symphony Orchestra, the disc features Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto in D Minor – coupled with Mendelssohn’s Concerto in D Minor for Violin, Piano and String Orchestra.
“The discovery of the orchestral version of the Double Concerto was the inspiration behind the album … it is Mendelssohn himself who edited the concerto later in his life and added percussion and wind parts – the Double concerto sounds much more complete and full with such orchestration … ” Solomiya has told The Violin Channel.
“Mendessohn is a brilliant composer and there is so much to discover.”
