Mozart: Violin Concertos 1 & 5 / Frang
Label: Warner Classics
Composed by: Mozart, W.A.
Following the success of her albums of Romantic and Late Romantic repertoire, exclusive Warner Classics recording artist Vilde Frang has recorded Mozart’s Concertos Nos. 1 and 5 ‘Turkish’ and the Sinfonia Concertante K364, enabling music lovers to hear the Norwegian violinist perform Classical-era repertoire on disc for the first time.The impetus for this album was a 2012 orchestral tour of Asia conducted by Jonathan Cohen in which Vilde performed Mozart’s Violin Concerto No. 5.The vibrancy of their musical collaboration was something both artists were keen to repeat and commit to disc.Vilde Frang is joined by Jonathan’s Cohen’s chamber orchestra, Arcangelo, and by violist Maxim Rysanov in the Sinfonia Concertante. Ms. Frang (b. 1986) has established herself as one of the leading young violinists of her generation since she was engaged by Mariss Jansons at the age of twelve to perform with Oslo Philharmonic.
