Multiple Grammy Award-nominated violinist Philippe Quint makes his debut on Warner Classics with the release of his latest album “Chaplin’s Smile,” a collection of Charlie Chaplin songs newly arranged for violin and piano. To commemorate the 130th anniversary of Chaplin’s birth in 2019, Quint is joined by pianist Marta Aznavoorian and, on two tracks, by his friend and frequent collaborator, violinist Joshua Bell. Over more than three years, Quint, in collaboration with arrangers Charles Coleman and Leon Gurvitch, went through dozens of songs and soundtracks written by Chaplin to select the songs best suited for violin and piano.
