Bruch & Mendelssohn Violin Concertos • Beethoven Romances – Philippe Quint (1 Hybrid SACD + Bonus DVD)
A two-time Grammy Award nominee, violinist Philippe Quint has emerged in recent years as one of the few soloists to combine a remarkable degree of lyricism, poetry and impeccable virtuosity. He has gripped the ears and eyes of audiences in Europe, the US, Asia, Australia, Latin America and Africa with what The Times (London) describes as his “bravura technique, and unflagging energy.”
For the first time Philippe Quint records warhorses of the XIXth century classical music repertoire, a project dear to the artist’s heart. This is furthermore the first recording Philippe Quint has made in Super Audio CD and with the 1708 “Ruby” Antonio Stradivari violin, on loan to him through the generous efforts of The Stradivari Society®.
The superb Orquesta Sinfónica de Minería is led by the charismatic Mexican conductor Carlos Miguel Prieto. Philippe Quint: ‘This album comes from my heart, with great love and passion for this music and out of a childhood dream to record these works.’
Limited Edition: Hybrid SACD + Bonus DVD: Quint for the Record: a 25 min program on Philippe Quint, the Orquesta Sinfónica de Minería and Carlos Miguel Prieto, entirely shot in Mexico.
