About

Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco considered the 1924 Concerto Italiano to be his first truly symphonic venture. This tuneful, fresh and transparently scored concerto here receives its world première recording. It was admired by the great violinist Jascha Heifetz, for whom the composer wrote his Concerto No.2 ‘I Profeti’ (The Prophets), an impassioned work ‘of biblical character and inspiration’ with an almost cinematic sweep.

The recipient of the coveted Echo Klassik award for her album of Mendelssohn’s two Violin Concertos [8572662], Tianwa Yang is widely recognised as one of the outstanding rising stars on the world classical music scene.
