On-the-rise French violinist Virgil Boutellis-Taft reveals many sides of the violin’s singing voice on this album with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra under Jac van Steen’s direction. Sometimes violent and fiery – as in Saint-Saëns’ Danse macabre – and sometimes tender – as in Tchaikovsky and Bruch – Incantation is deeply rooted in musical history. Boutellis-Taft showcases works where the voice of the violin inspired the creation of many composers’ most captivating works.
