Barcode: 0825646276776

Other participants: Maxim Rysanov, Jonathan Cohen

Following the success of her discs of Romantic and Late Romantic repertoire, 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 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. Jonathan Cohen’s chamber orchestra, Arcangelo, proved the ideal partner, joined by violist Maxim Rysanov in the Sinfonia Concertante.

The Sunday Times – Album of the Week “The results are fresh and invigorating”

BBC Music Magazine – Concerto Choice (5 Stars) “Frang has the knack of breathing life into every note […] compelling listening throughout with button-bright sound”

Classic FM Featured Album: "Frang's playing is extrovert and confident...Some of the very best versions of Mozart's timeless masterpieces."
