Frankfurt Radio Symphony
As Emmanuel Tjeknavorian sees it, both of these violin concertos on this album share a strong relationship with their composers’ origins. “Just as Sibelius always expressed his Nordic roots in his music, so my father’s proximity to the Armenian and Persian cultures is clearly recognisable in his compositions.” Critics and audiences alike rave about the young violinist’s brilliant technique as well as saluting the astounding artistic maturity demonstrated by this young man from Vienna, praising his skill in combining “a plucky approach and sweetness of tone” (ORF).
The present album is a combination of the live recording from the artist’s Frankfurt debut of the Sibelius work in March 2019 accompanied by the hr Symphony Orchestra under the baton of the Spanish conductor Pablo González and a studio production of the Tjeknavorian concerto. Describing that memorable concert in Frankfurt, the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung noted that he “never confused coolness with chill, and rose with amazing flexibility to achieve either the double stops or the flageolet flickers”. “A soloist who takes your breath away,” was the verdict of the Gießener Allgemeine. The bonus track on the album is the encore of the Frankfurt concert, the Crane by Vardapet Komitas, an Armenian composer.
Emmanuel Tjeknavorian is also branching out on another career path. Having successfully conducted orchestras in Vienna and other countries, he will be taking to the rostrum more often from now on. This young man has a promising and varied musical career ahead of him – both as a violinist and as a conductor.
