Info
Alexandre Da Costa’s violin sings with joy in a magical record of opera highlights arranged for solo violin and orchestra. Da Costa performs passionate and beautiful melodies from Wagner’s Valkyrie and Meistersingers, Puccini’s Turandot, Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin and Richard Strauss’ Der Rosenkavalier – along with Jules Massenet’s beloved Meditation from Thais and Georges Bizet’s sparkling and seductive Carmen Fantasy.
