More Info:

Jenny Oaks Baker returns with this tour de force of popular themes from the silver screen. Jenny often gravitates toward songs that have a timeless quality this album is no exception. She has carefully chosen songs with beloved melodies that lend themselves to a larger-than-life production style. Her Juilliardtrained, highly skilled approach to the violin shines on "Across the Stars" from Star Wars: Attack of the Clones, and her deep musicality comes through on the haunting tune "In Dreams" from The Lord of the Rings. She also stays true to her spiritual roots on classics "A Mighty Fortress Is Our God" and "Chariots of Fire", which celebrate the faith that underpins her career. "With great pleasure I was able to listen to this beautiful latest work by the prestigious violinist Jenny Oaks Baker. I have known this amazing artist for a few years and I always follow her performances when I can. I've always had the same vibrant impression: she plays the violin from the bottom of her soul. Her bow, running on the strings of her violin, alternates moments of great sweetness with moments of deep emotion. I really like how Jenny draws her musical phrases, how she wanted to recite a poem with her violin. This new CD confirms Jenny's great musical skills, in which the clear romantic lessons of great composers such as Mendelssohn and the sincere and melodic lightness of modern times shine through. I strongly recommend that you listen to this beautiful, uplifting, and intense work." - Nicolas Giusti (award-winning conductor: Placido Domingo, June Anderson, Rockwell Blacke etc..)
