Johan Dalene on his new album, Stained Glass

Friday, October 13, 2023

The Swedish violinist joins the Gramophone Podcast to talk about the music of Ravel, Prokofiev, Pärt, Bacewicz and Boulanger

In this week's Gramophone Podcast we meet with Swedish violinist Johan Dalene, a former Gramophone Young Artist of the Year and the recipient of Editor's Choices for the concertos of Nielsen and Sibelius, and for his previous album with Christian Ihle Hadland, 'Nordic Rhapsody'. He joins Editor Martin Cullingford to talk about his new release on the BIS label, 'Stained Glass', also recorded with Christian Ihle Hadland – a beautifully-performed programme of Ravel, Prokofiev, Pärt, Bacewicz and Boulanger.
