Skog & Nilsson: Contemporary Violin Concertos
Helsing, Anna-Maria; Zilliacus, Cecilia; Västerås Sinfonietta; Helsingborgs Symfoniorkester; Burstedt, Fredrik
After Cecilia Zilliacus’s internationally praised release with Carl Nielsen’s violin concerto, she now presents a world premiere recording of two new Swedish violin concertos. One concerto of Anders Nilsson, one of Sweden’s most prominent composers, and the other of Ylva Skog, nominated twice for the Swedish Grammy Award for her previous composer portraits. Cecilia Zilliacus is one of Sweden’s most accomplished violinists, working across the Nordic countries and Europe. Her versatile repertoire of solo and chamber music works has led her to cooperate with a vast number of composers and orchestras. Her interest in newly written pieces and contemporary music has generated several compositions written specifically for her. She has recorded a number of albums, several of which have won Swedish Grammies.
