Welcome to "For the Record," Violinist.com's weekly roundup of new releases of recordings by violinists, violists, cellists and other classical musicians. We hope it helps you keep track of your favorite artists, as well as find some new ones to add to your listening!
Violinist Daniel Hope and Ukrainian pianist Alexey Botvinov have recorded music by Ukrainian composers Valentin Silvestrov, Myroslav Skoryk and Jan Freidlin for an EP that will donate all proceeds to charities working to help the people of Ukraine. "My thoughts and prayers are with all the people and our friends in Ukraine," Hope said. "In these days I was due to be in Kyiv with Ukrainian pianist Alexey Botvinov to work with the composer Valentin Silvestrov. Instead, we have decided to record his music in Berlin, together with other Ukrainian composers as a message of musical solidarity. Teldex Studios, Steinway and Kobalt Media provided their services free of charge for this EP. Deutsche Grammophon, Alexey Botvinov and I will donate the proceeds from this digital release to the charity 'Aktion Deutschland Hilft,' which is doing essential work to help Ukraine."
