About

As a boy, Benjamin Godard was a celebrated violin prodigy, but later turned to composition as his lifeís work. With the notable exception of the ever-popular Berceuse from the opera Jocelyn, most of Godardís works have fallen out of the repertoire.
A thorough romantic in the Schumann-Mendelssohn mould, Godard was best known for his short atmospheric pieces and stage works, while his short piano pieces has recently garnered new respect. Two of his most successful longer works are the Concerto Romantique and the Violin Concerto No. 2, both featuring deft virtuoso writing for the violin and the romantic sensibility of the mid-nineteenth century.
ďThe blossoming career of the gifted young violinist ChloŽ Hanslip has been a delight to watch in recent years. This characterful performer has worked assiduously at her technique and range of tone, and her spirited playing can safely be described as both versatile and mature.Ē The Strad magazine
