LSO and Apple Music have released “A New Dawn” a powerful collection of familiar and lesser-known works, featuring the star violinist Francesca Dego in Bologne’s Concerto Op.5 no.2 in A major, which was chosen as Gramophone’s video of the day. For Francesca, Bologne’s music is a fairly recent discovery.
“When first introduced to his music a few years ago I was shocked by the fact I had never even read about him before, considering he is clearly one of the great violin virtuosos of all time” she comments. “Having now performed the A major Concerto various times I am beyond excited and grateful to be able to bring it to listeners together with one of the world’s greatest orchestras, the London Symphony. It truly deserves it!”
