Decca Classics Signs Exclusive Solo Recording Contract With Leonidas Kavakos

Decca announced today that they have signed an exclusive contract with one of the world’s finest violinists, Leonidas Kavakos. Firmly established as an artist of quite exceptional quality, Kavakos is known at the highest level for his virtuosity, superb musicianship and the integrity of his playing.

The first Decca release with Leonidas Kavakos will be a complete set of the Beethoven Violin Sonatas performed with Enrico Pace to be launched in time for his complete cycle at this summer’s Salzburg Festival. Kavakos will also play complete Beethoven cycles at the Vienna Musikverein as well as in Athens, Milan, Amsterdam and Florence.

Managing Director of Decca Classics, Paul Moseley, said:
“Since his pioneering recording of the original Sibelius concerto 20 years ago, Leonidas Kavakos has slowly and surely risen to the top of the violinists’ tree. He is now the first choice of great conductors and orchestras around the world. With Leonidas possibilities begin where most other violinists run out of options. So the time is right for Decca to team up with him to record major keystones of the repertoire, including his first recordings of the Beethoven Sonatas, Brahms Violin Concerto (conducted by Riccardo Chailly) and complete solo Bach.”

Leonidas Kavakos commented:
“Decca, with its many historical recordings, great sound and legendary roster of artists, was always a significant influence in my youth. Now with this exciting collaboration, I very much look forward to recording repertoire that has been a cornerstone of my existence and development over many years. I am very excited to be joining the wonderful Decca team and to be serving the music in our future together.”
