Recorded in January 2017, the LGT Young Soloists’ second album has now been released by RCA Red Seal.
The virtuosic and temperamental album Italian Journey is followed by a second CD, recorded with passion and musical maturity: Russian Soul. Among other works, the LGT Young Soloists present Rachmaninoff’s famous “Vocalise” in a version for viola and string orchestra, a fantasy on motifs from the opera “The Golden Cockerel” by Rimsky-Korsakov, the well-known “Andante cantabile” by Tchaikovsky and the “Paganini” Rhapsody by Rachmaninoff in a version for violin, piano and string orchestra. The young string players’ fine-tuned sense for the melancholy music attributed to the Russian soul gives the album its own, profound note. Let these interpretations enchant you!
Now available: Russian Soul can be ordered via Amazon and other retailers
