After the outstanding critical acclaim of her previous album of Tchaikovsky & Sibelius Violin Concertos with Staatskapelle Berlin and Daniel Barenboim, Lisa Batiashvili presents a masterful version of Prokofiev's two violin concertos, in another first-class musical partnership, with Chamber Orchestra of Europe and Yannick Nézet-Séguin. With her unique talent to turn standard repertoire into something new, fresh, elegant and special, this album will allow the listener to rediscover Prokofiev through Lisa’s eyes.
The album features the core classic Prokofiev (violin concertos), as well as selected movements of his famous ballets with their very recognizable tunes (Cinderella, Romeo and Juliet, The Love for Three Oranges), newly arranged for Solo Violin and Orchestra by Tamás Batiashvili, Lisa’s father.
