Hilary Hahn's newest album contains Ernest Chausson’s Poème, Sergei Prokofiev’s Violin Concerto No.1 and the late Finnish composer Einojuhani Rautavaara’s "Deux Sérénades." Read more about it in our interview with Hilary. BELOW: From the album, Prokofiev: Violin Concerto No. 1 in D Major, Op. 19 - II. Scherzo: Vivacissimo:.
Elgar’s violin concerto "is a huge piece, both in terms of its length and its romantic and noble nature," said violinist Renaud Capuçon. This is Capuçon’s first recording with Sir Simon Rattle, here conducting the London Symphony Orchestra. Paired with the concerto on this album is Elgar's violin sonata, first performed in 1919. Capuçon, who calls the sonata “a work of nobility and tenderness," is joined by one of British pianist Stephen Hough. BELOW: Capucon and Hough perform Elgar's Violin Sonata in E minor, Op. 82: III. Allegro, non troppo.
