Bookmark and Share

Leonidas Kavakos plays some of the most colorful and demanding violin works ever written, paired with a selection of beautiful and lyrical encores. Kavakos described his motivation for the disc: "After recording the Beethoven and Brahms violin sonatas, which is rather heavy repertoire, I wanted to present something that contained a greater variety of different styles and that focused on the violin as an expressive instrument."

Leonidas Kavakos: Virtuoso on Decca is the WFMT: Chicago NEW RELEASE OF THE WEEK. Featured Tracks - Strauss, arr. Příhoda: Waltzes from Der Rosenkavalier (7:56). Leonidas Kavakos, violin; Enrico Pace, piano
