Matthew Trusler, Violin; Düsseldofer Symphoniker conducted by Yasuo Shinozaki.
Matthew Trusler’s first concerto recording features two pieces premièred by Jascha Heifetz – the violin concertos of Erich Korngold and Miklós Rózsa, together with three short pieces that Heifetz popularised.
Trusler, hailed by The Times as “an authentic, though British, virtuoso”, performs as a recitalist and concerto soloist throughout Europe, Australia, the USA, Japan and South Africa. He plays a 1711 Stradivarius and uses one of Heifetz’s own bows. - Courtesy of Orchid Classics
