We’re coming from Wigmore Hall in London this morning with Ukrainian violinist, former Queen Elisabeth International Violin Competition Major prize winner, Aleksey Semenenko, and pianist Artem Belogurov.

Enter to be in this week's giveaway, featuring Aleksey's newest album, "Crossroads."

"One of the great things about playing modern music is that you can get to know and understand the composers, and it was a privilege to work closely with Tony Schemmer," Aleksey told us.

"The process of working with a composer is fascinating and proves that there is a freedom of interpretation, whether you’re working on pieces from the 21st century, or the 17th or 18th centuries. As artists, we sometimes think we are restricted by the notes on the page, but when you work with living composers you realize that many things are open."
