The LGT Young Soloists’ second CD Russian Soul, released in May 2017 by RCA Red Seal, is praised by various reviewers.
The Strad is enthusiastic about the musical depth of the recording, and the music magazine Rondo praises the solo passages and its team spirit. The US-based music magazine Fanfare even calls the LGT Young Soloists “one of the best youth orchestras in Europe”. The enchanting melancholy and profound music by Rachmaninoff, Tchaikovsky and others is a perfect fit for the upcoming Christmas season and would make a great gift underneath the Christmas tree.
Given so much goodwill, it is hardly surprising that the third CD production, which will feature Nordic works, is already underway. The new album will be recorded in January 2018.
