Rui Lopes’ CD “Through Time” with the ECO (directed by Stephanie Gonley) will be released on June 30. The album includes music for bassoon and orchestra by Villa-Lobos, Mozart, Vivaldi, Elgar and Francaix.
Rui writes: “The dream of many classical musicians is to record as a soloist with an extraordinary orchestra such as the English Chamber Orchestra. The list of pieces that I love to play is quite long, and making the selection was both interesting and challenging. I did not want to have only one theme or period in musical history, but rather a selection of pieces that I enjoy playing the most from our beautiful repertoire.”
