Catalogue No: ONYX4016

Young Canadian violinist James Ehnes makes his debut on ONYX with this unique and very generous 79 minute coupling of the mid- 20th century’s three most romantic Violin Concertos.
 
As one of Hollywood's busiest composers of film scores, Erich Korngold was at the top of his profession. His 1947 Violin Concerto turns inward to the lush melodies and plush orchestrations he knew so well from his work in the studios.
 
Barber and Waltons' Concertos also date form the 30s and 40s and are two of the most melodic and popular in the repertory. 
 
"Mr. Ehnes can really play," raved the New York Sun for his début with the New York Philharmonic earlier this year, playing the Walton concerto: “Seldom will you hear such singing on a violin."   
 
Ehnes has been getting rave reviews around the globe - his career goes from strength to strength  www.jamesehnes.com
