I have for you today a heads up on a new recording that will be out in early February, 2018.
Lisa Batiashvili presents a masterful version of Prokofiev’s two violin concertos, in another first-class musical partnership, with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe and Yannick Nézet-Séguin.
With her unique ability to turn standard repertoire into something new, fresh, elegant and special, this album will allow the listener to rediscover Prokofiev through Lisa’s eyes. Set for release on 2 February 2018, the album features the core classic Prokofiev (violin concertos), as well as selected movements of his famous ballets with their very recognizable tunes (Cinderella, Romeo and Juliet, The Love for Three Oranges), newly arranged for Solo Violin and Orchestra by Tamás Batiashvili, Lisa’s father.
Here is Ms. Batiashvili, performing the concerto number 1 by Prokofiev:
