Greek violinist Leonidas Kavakos has signed to Sony Classical for his next recording projects, after four-album stint with Decca.Initial projects include the Beethoven concerto for which he will direct the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, and a full set of the Bach Sonatas and Partitas. Kavakos recorded three albums with the label from 2006 to 2012 before joining Decca. His return to Sony was presaged by the widely praised Brahms piano trios album with Emanual Ax and Yo-Yo Ma released last year. ‘It is very exciting to be returning to Sony Classical for some of the most important and challenging violin repertoire,' Kavakos said in a statement.  PHOTO: ©Marco Borggreve
