Following the success of his debut recital disc in 2014, Callum releases his second recital disc ‘La Voix’ on the Orchid Classics label with pianist Richard Uttley. Featuring Poulenc’s Sonata for Violin & Piano, Op.119, Faure’s Violin Sonata No.1 in A, Op.13 and Ravel’s Tzigane and Piece en forme de Habanera, the disc explores the vocal qualities central to all these works. The disc has already been given 4 stars by the Observer, stating “…the dreamy intermezzo of Poulenc’s sonata for violin and piano, FP 119: in the hands of Callum Smart and Richard Uttley its vocal quality is never in doubt.”
The occasion is marked by a recital tour which features venues including The Barber Institute in Birmingham on 16th March, London’s Wigmore Hall on 20th March, L’Auditiorium du Louvre Paris on 24th March and the Berlin Konzerthaus on 30th March.
