High praise for “Italian Journey” – LGT Young Soloists’ first CD wins over listeners

The LGT Young Soloists’ first CD Italian Journey, which features works by Italian composers from the 18th to the 20th centuries, has been well received. The mix of periods and styles, of solo and orchestral works, are not just testimony of the ensemble’s great skill, but also leave significant room for the young soloists’ irrepressible zest for music as well as their spirit: “Not only is the music played in a highly flexible, animated and seemingly spontaneous manner, the dynamic and colorful nuances, arc of tension and narrative energy are stupendous.” (Pizzicato)

Ranging from the Devil’s Trill Sonata and the Cavalleria Rusticana through to the famous theme song from Cinema Paradiso, fans of string music and lovers of light classical music will be equally delighted by this musical voyage through Italy. “A more than successful debut.” (Das Orchester)
