LANCINO, T.: Violin Concerto / Prelude and Death of Virgil (Faust, Monti, Luxembourg Philharmonic, Orchestre National de France, Tamayo, Schwarz)

Thierry Lancino’s background includes extensive periods of research at IRCAM and elsewhere, but his recent work concentrates on a lyrical and bold freedom of style embracing ideas of both seduction and spirituality. Inspired by a scene of historical impact, his Prelude and Death of Virgil dramatizes the demise of a daunting genius. Lancino writes of his Violin Concerto that his imagination was fired by ‘the thought of a little piece of wood (in reality a 1704 Stradivarius), played by Isabelle Faust, confronting a gigantic machine (the full orchestra)’. Thierry Lancino’s Requiem (Naxos 8.572771) was described as ‘exhilarating’ by BBC Music Magazine.
