Premiere Recordings from Martin Chalifour
Fans of Martin’s debut album will be pleased that the outstanding violinist is back with his second album which showcases his versatility with performances of Mozart, Lutoslawski and two premiere recordings.
Recorded in the magnificent Walt Disney Hall (described by producer Bob Attiyeh as ‘a recording engineer’s dream’), Martin plays his famous 1716 Nathan Milstein golden-era Stradivarius, under the direction of two brilliant conductors.
Sir Neville Marriner conducts the Los Angeles Philharmonic for a sublime performance of Mozart’s Violin Concerto No. 5 where Martin’s musicality shines through. Andrey Boreyko conducts the orchestra and Chalifour in Lutoslawski’s violin concerto Chain 2 which was originally written for Anne-Sophie Mutter.
This album also includes the world premiere recording of Steven Stucky’s Tres Pinturas, featuring pianist Joanne Pearce Martin, and Esa Pekka Salonen’s Lachen verlent which complete this varied programme. Experience this delightful performance in Studio Master quality today.
