Violinist Leonidas Kavakos Talks About His New Release

Violinist Leonidas Kavakos is regarded as one of the world’s finest violinists, an exceptional talent who has appeared with the world’s greatest orchestras. He is an exclusive artist with Decca Classics and recently released a new album showcasing several virtuoso works for the violin. Included on this release are “some of the most exciting and challenging violin works ever written, alongside beautiful, lyrical encores.”

Leonidas spent some time chatting with me about this release and his career, which extends well beyond just playing the violin, to conducting and running chamber music master classes. Enjoy these excerpts from our discussion and purchase the CD on Amazon!

Yours in good music,
