As the world navigates a period in history that changes daily, we are here to offer listeners something certain: new music. This month, we’re proud to introduce three new albums from Navona Records, including choral music that transcends borders and a violin concerto whose life spans 65 years and a journey from its birth in Argentina to Siberia, where it was recorded.
Eugène Ysaÿe: Six Sonatas for Solo Violin
Acclaimed English violinist Thomas Bowes seems to have a penchant for thoroughness and completion. The European virtuoso has now taken it upon himself to embark on another quest for totality, recording the six sonatas by Belgian violinist Eugène Ysaÿe (1858-1931), presented on Bowes’ new album, SIX SONATAS FOR SOLO VIOLIN. And as one would expect from Bowes, they are played to perfection.
Alicia Terzian’s VIOLIN CONCERTO is the culmination of a project more than 50 years in the making. Originally composed in 1955, this daring work has been recorded at long last thanks to a collaboration between Navona Records and the Siberian State Symphony Orchestra.
