Introduction and Rondo capriccioso, Havanaise, Violin Concerto No. 3, and Romance: these pieces composed between 1859 and 1887 are among the most celebrated works by Camille Saint-Saëns. They are also signature pieces of violinist Jinjoo Cho, first prize winner of the 2014 Indianapolis International Violin Competition. “In a way there is a sense of personal nostalgia that I associate with his music,” says Cho. “It feels to me like meeting an old friend when I play Saint-Saëns. Recording this album with Mathieu and Appassionato was an incredibly uplifting and illuminating experience in the midst of a pandemic.”
