Notes and Editorial Reviews

“I am excited to present an album that in many ways turned out to be an autobiographical musical journey from my recent past to the present.” Philippe Quint

For his new project with Avanticlassic, internationally acclaimed violinist Philippe Quint is joined by rising star pianist Lily Maisky for a unique recital featuring the most beloved Operatic transcriptions. Recorded with the legendary 1708 "Ruby" Stradivari, Opera Breve will allow you to (re)discover such gems as Figaro's aria from Il Barbiere di Siviglia, ‘Una Furtiva Lagrima from l’Elisir d’Amore, Lensky’s Aria from Eugene Onegin, ‘Mon coeur s’ouvre à ta voix’ from Samson and Delilah and Jascha Heifetz's clever arrangements from Porgy and Bess.

From the fiery virtuosity of la Vida Breve, to the overtly humorous Il Barbiere di Siviglia, Philippe Quint and Lily Maisky will offer you an exquisite hour with the most beloved opera aria transcriptions in superlative interpretations.

R E V I E W S:

...Philippe Quint performs a series of pieces specifically related to his musical biography, a collection of songs and opera arias that serve as “associations, reflections, and memories that made me remember very significant people and moments in my life”... [In] Falla’s Spanish Dance, we feel a distinct musical atavism, as if young Quint were either Heifetz or Ricci in his heyday. ...Quint reveals an equally fragrant legato, certainly reminiscent of what Wunderlich could do to melt our hearts.
