Bénédicte Plays Tchaikovsky
Andrei Feher, conductor
Bénédicte Lauzière, violin
Ulysses Kay: Fantasy Variations
Tchaikovsky: Violin Concerto in D major
Kalinnikov: Symphony No. 1 in G minor
KWS Concertmaster Bénédicte Lauzière shines in one of the best-loved violin concertos in the repertoire by Tchaikovsky. Kalinnikov is a lesser-known Russian composer who died at an early age but deserves a place among the Russian greats. His Symphony No. 1, written at the end of the 19th century, is full of beautiful, lush melodies and robust Russian character.
