Linus Roth selected as 'Editor's Choice' by Gramophone Magazine!


Linus Roth's latest album Britten/ Weinberg Violin Concertos has been selected as 'Editor's Choice' by Gramophone Magazine! On this album the violinist plays Concertos of Britten and Weinberg together with the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin conducted by Mihkel Kütson.

“In short, an outstanding disc.” David Fanning, Gramophone magazine

Not only Gramophone applauded this album, it was also well-received by other international press: “The interpretation of both concertos by Linus Roth is without a doubt sublime” wrote Siebe Riedstra in Luister, and awarded the album with the highest possible ranking, a 'Luister 10'. Andrew Clarke reviewed the album for Financial Times and wrote "The German violinist performs open-heart surgery on the music [...] and reveals its stature like no other".

‘Violin Concertos’
Mieczysław Weinberg's Violin Concerto (1959) was dedicated to Leonid Kogan, one of the biggest violinists of the Sovjet period. It has rarely been released on cd before. For this album, Linus Roth has also recorded Benjamin Britten's Violin Concerto. Britten's Opus 15 was written upon his and his partner Peter Pears's arrival in America, just before the Second World War. The Violin Concerto is the only one of Britten's Concertos which has attained international fame and repertoire status.
