* Required Fields

Violinist Jose Miguel Cueto was born in Puerto Rico where he received early piano and violin training. He studied violin at the Conservatory of Music of Puerto Rico and Peabody Conservatory of The Johns Hopkins University. Admired by public and critics for his solid technique, rich and beautiful tone, Strad Magazine recognized his New York debut as grounded, confident, and superb. Vladimir Lande was born in St. Petersburg. He graduated from the St. Petersburg Conservatory of Music with degrees in Oboe and Piano performance. In addition to his conducting schedule, Lande maintains a solo and chamber music career as an oboist. He is a member of the Poulenc Trio whose debut recording Poulenc Plays Poulenc was released recently by Marquis.

In his concerto "The Prophets", Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco turns to the old testament for inspiration. The work represents what he called "the ethnical environment" of his music. He said: "The composition is supposed to be a kind of biblical concerto, an evocation of times in the glorious past." The composer uses traditional Jewish melodies or fragments of melodies for the principal themes of the concerto. The violin writing is virtuosic and technically demanding; the instrumentation brilliant, dramatic, and heroic.

Ottorino Respighi considered the Concerto gregoriano one of his best works, but did not live to witness its success. The concerto embodies peace and spirituality, conveyed through Gregorian Chants, open harmonies, and beautiful orchestration.

The music on this CD is performed by José Miguel Cueto on violin, and the St. Petersburg Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Vladimir Lande.
