As a classical violinist, Benjamin Schmid has an outstanding reputation throughout the world. His last CD – a live recording of the Korngold Violin Concerto made at the 2004 Salzburg Festival – was celebrated as an archetype of modern virtuosity. Simultaneously, however, the violinist pursues a second career in a radically opposite musical sphere: Benjamin Schmid becomes jazz violinist Beni Schmid and improvises in the style of the legendary Stéphane Grappelli with his band BeniSchmidObsession. In this constellation he is accompanied by no less than guitarist Biréli Lagrène. The ensemble‘s accompanying two guitars, bass and cello indubitably call to mind the legendary Quintette du Hot Club de France, which caused an uproar in the 1930s with Stéphane Grappelli and Django Reinhardt at its head.
Price: Sek. 70
Name: Hommage à Grappelli
