Press release below:
Edel Kultur is pleased to announce for 2020 an extended cooperation with the Viennese violinist and conductor Emmanuel Tjeknavorian. In February 2020, as part of a new exclusive contract with the Edel Kultur label Berlin Classics, Tjeknavorian’s second album will be released, featuring the violin concertos of Jean Sibelius and the artist’s father Loris Tjeknavorian. The recording was made with the Frankfurt Radio Symphony under the baton of Pablo Gonzáles.
‘The relationship and the collaboration between an artist and a record label have always been of paramount importance. At the present time, following all the developments of recent years, I am very impressed by the understanding that Berlin Classics brings to the vision and the creativity of its artists, and by their healthy dose of idealism, which the music world needs today more than ever. I look forward to artistically satisfying and meritorious projects,’ says Emmanuel Tjeknavorian of the new agreement.
