Collaboration with Kantorow well-received
Together with other soloists of the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel, I recorded Lalo’s famous Symphonie Espagnole with maestro Jean-Jacques Kantorow and the Liège Royal Philharmonic.
The Strad commented: ‘The Symphonie espagnole is, of course, a real crowd-pleaser, teeming with catchy melodies and boasting a dazzling virtuoso part. The overall effect is entirely winning, with fantastically sensitive violin playing dressed up with tremendous technical virtuosity.’
And MusicWeb wrote: ‘Lorenzo Gatto proves an adept interpreter. His performance […] packs the excitement. This is a very fine set with all the soloists being allowed to shine. They are equally well backed up by the excellent Liège Royal Philharmonic under the leadership of Jean-Jacques Kantorow. This is an ideal way to reappraise this composer, and even if like me you know these works, there is something new to find here.’
