Brilliant young violinist Chloë Hanslip revives French romantic treasures

June 19, 2007

In the late 19th century French violinist and composer Benjamin Godard wrote popular salon music and two violin concertos of exceptional beauty. Violinist Chloë Hanslip recorded his Romantique Concerto, Op. 35 and the Violin Concerto No. 2, Op. 131 with the Slovak State Philharmonic Orchestra, Kosice, conducted by Kirk Trevor, who also led the orchestra in Godard’s Scènes Poétiques Op. 46.

Of her Naxos début (8.559302) the Guardian wrote, “Playing like this should secure Chloë Hanslip's reputation for life”, while Limelight considered it “one of Naxos’ best recordings ever”, concluding “ she is likely to become the greatest violinist of her generation”.

Sessions took place at House of Arts, Kosice, Slovakia, and were produced by Karol Kopernicky and engineered by Otto Nopp.
