The OFJ announces its international recording debut, with a CD dedicated to the music of Tchaikovsky, on the SONY CLASSICAL label. The disc was recorded in 2015, the year which commemorates the 175th anniversary of this great composer`s birth. Our home concert hall, the Teatro Degollado, now with more than 150 years of history under its belt, was the place where multiple-prizewinning record producer Phil Rowlands,who specializes in classical music, accomplished the recording of this material.
This Tuesday, May 30th, will be the official presentation of this album as we interpret two works by Tchaikovsky: the aria "Kuda, Kuda" from the opera Eugene Onegin, arranged for violin and orchestra by Leopold Auer and recorded for the first time by the OFJ and Alexandre da Costa, and, to conclude the program, the symphonic poem Francesca da Rimini, Op. 32.
