In January 2016 Kevin Griffiths will be recording an “Alla Turca” CD with works by Mozart, Haydn and Romberg for the label CPO

Kevin Griffiths, the violinist Julia Schröder and the Collegium Musicum Basel will record Mozart’s Violin concerto no. 5 in A-major KV 219, often referred to by the nickname “Turkish”, Joseph Haydn’s “L’incontro improvviso”, an example of the then Austrian fascination with Turkish motives, and Andreas Romberg’s Sinfonia alla turca Nr. 4 op. 51, who was one of Mozart’s contemporaries. The German CD-label CPO for which Kevin Griffiths has already recorded before will release it.
