Spotify Playlist

Here's a Spotify playlist featuring a selection of recordings recommended by Lev for our Summmer 2022 concert.


Strauss - Four Last Songs

Lev has two contrasting suggestions.

Firstly, one of several recordings by the soprano Elisabeth Schwarzkopf. This live recording by the Philharmonia Orchestra was conducted by Herbert von Karajan at the Royal Festival Hall. It features Manoug Parikian, Lev's father, playing the violin solo.

Alternatively, try this recording by Jessye Norman with the Gewandhausorchester of Leipzig and Kurt Masur.

Vaughan Williams - A London Symphony

Lev recommends this recording by Sir Mark Elder and the Hallé released in 2011.
