ARS Produktion has this week announced the release of Ukrainian violin virtuoso Aleksey Semenenko’s new album: Romantic Brilliant Imaginative.
Recorded with Russian pianist Inna Firsova, the disc features Paganini’s I Palpiti, Schubert’s Fantasie, Tchaikovsky’s Serenade Melancolique, Grieg’s little-known violin sonata and Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco’s Figaro Paraphrase.
“The original inspiration for this CD was the connection between Paganini and Schubert … the Schubert ‘Fantasie’ was inspired by Paganini after Schubert attended one of his concerts … and Tchaikovsky is then this beautiful cantabile bridge between the two virtuosi pieces …” Aleksey has told The Violin Channel.
“I hope the listeners will enjoy the brilliance, youth and fantasy of the disc … and hopefully discover a few delightful, surprise new works they’ve never heard before,” he has said.
