Mozart Violin Concertos 2

The follow up to their first collaboration, Francesca Dego and Sir Roger Norrington return to the studio for the third & fourth violin concertos,  once again joined by the Royal Scottish National Orchestra. Notably, the first time either soloist or conductor has recorded the works.  Of the first album, The Sunday Times noted ‘Pairing the veteran Mozartian Norrington – a pioneer of historical performance practice – with the young Italian-American soloist Dego proves inspiring in what promises to be one of the freshest of recent cycles of the Mozart concertos.’

Il Cannone

Paganini’s violin, the legendary ‘il Cannone’, made by Giuseppe Guarneri del Gesù in 1743, is one of the most important musical instruments in the history of Western music. It has been heard on record just a handful of times. Francesca Dego was given the honour of recording with it after the success of her first performance on the instrument, in October 2019, when she was invited to play Paganini’s First Violin Concerto at the Paganini Celebratory Concert at Teatro Carlo Felice, in Genoa.
