Romantic Novelties for Violin and Orchestra


Hideko Udagawa has performed extensively throughout the world and captivates international audiences with her artistry and enthusiasm. As a protégée of Nathan Milstein, she has inherited the great Russian romantic tradition of violin playing, and brings it to the fore in this collection of works by Rimsky-Korsakov, Tchaikovsky, Glazounov, Gade and Ysase.
Alongside the Philharmonia Orchestra this disc includes two world premiere recordings of works by Eugène Ysaÿe – Mazurka No.2 Op.10 and Saltarelle Carnavalesque, Op.Posth.
Praise for Hideko’s last disc with Signum – Rachmaninov for Violin & Piano, with pianist Konstantin Lifschitz (SIGCD164)
“The world premiere recording … of the 1889 Romance … is very beautifully played by both artists and alone is worth the price of the disc.” 
International Record Review, February 2010

What people are saying

“Udagawa’s mastery of the Russian Romantic school of violin playing is a tour de force. Her distinctly northern European style suits this repertoire perfectly.“ Classic FM Magazine “Presenter’s Choice”, September 2010
