Leonidas Kavakos interviews with US radio today for new Decca release - Virtuoso

Bookmark and Share

Leonidas Kavakos showcases Virtuoso works for the violin on his latest Decca album. These pieces combine some of the most exciting and challenging violin works ever written, alongside beautiful, lyrical encores.  Displaying a formidable technique to stunning effect, Kavakos is heard here at his very best; his unique style stealing the show in a dazzling, wide-ranging program. This new recital features the devilish and highly demanding violin writing of Italian Paganini alongside the Spanish influences of De Falla and Tarrega, the Czech allure of Dvorak, the elegance of Britten and Elgar, and the Russian spirit of Tchaikovsky and Stravinsky.  All the works recorded here are associated with great players of the past, but are also still very much a part of the modern virtuoso's repertoire.  

In conjunction with this new release Kavakos will be interviewing with US Radio Today - Monday April 18. Stations include - Nationally Syndicated Classical 24, Statewide Network - Minnesota Public Radio, WCLV: Cleveland, KUHA: Houston, WCVE: Richmond VA, WOSU: Columbus OH, WGTE: Toledo OH, WCPE: Wake Forest NC, WBAA: West Lafayette IN, CKCL: Winnipeg CAN
