The Golden Violin – Music of the 20’s

“The Golden Violin – Music of the 20’s” is a concert experience exploring the fantastic music of the Roaring 20’s with chamber orchestra: the crackly sounds of early Hollywood, including dazzling tunes by Korngold, Chaplin, Gershwin, Rachmaninoff in modern and fresh arrangements.

Super classy and atmospheric, the project implores the glorious days of American and British stage music on the highest level, when classical and film music enriched each other in an inimitable way.

Daniel Röhn, one can say, stands alone in his ability to re-create the ‘black and white’, luscious violin playing of this time, unmistakably heard in his past recordings and recognised unanimously my major press publications.
The accompanying CD will be recorded with Württemberg Chamber Orchestra Heilbronn and Case Scaglione and be released in January 2019 on EDEL / Berlin Classics

Like Heifetz and Stern before him, Röhn is so mesmerisingly in control
The Strad

Absolutely phenomenal – from the first to the last note. His sonority is often reminiscent of Heifetz, his flawless technique evokes to Szeryng
