Baiba Skride: Russian Souvenirs for Tchaikovsky

img  Tobias
It was Tchaikovsky’s “Violin Cóncerto in D Major”, after all, which won Baiba Skride the Reine Elisabeth Competition in Brussels in 2001.Barely three years later, she kickstarted her career by simultaneously releasing two debut albums on Sony – a connection which has remained intact until the present day.

“Tchaikovsky Souvenir Russe” is therefore less of a concession to popular demand, but rather the result of a rare coincidence: A commercial album by a highly headstrong artist. First reactions in the German press (with whom Baiba Skride has established a strong bond thanks to her home in Hamburg and regular touring) have proved her right up to now.
