"Roig-Francoli is a fine violinist with her own personality. Her playing is warm and thoughtful without flash or impishness. It feels refreshingly intimate and confiding, and her full tone and compelling personality hold my attention."

Solo con Spirito! Celebrating 50 represents a special personal achievement, as I’ve finally fulfilled my childhood dream of making a solo violin recording. Shortly after I began work on the project, the pandemic took over the world. I used the imposed isolation to build a recording studio in my home, and with the remote support of two engineers and a Grammy-Award winning producer, I produced this recording on the occasion of my 50th birthday. This was a fantastic learning adventure and a beautiful collaboration during very stressful times. Made with Love – ENJOY!

The CD comes in a shrink-wrapped jewel case, complete with 8-page booklet with pictures and liner notes. Recorded in Cincinnati, Ohio at Leadwell Studios for The Art of Freedom, LLC.

What Listeners are Saying…

“The CD is a triumph. Great playing, great sound, great repertoire.” ~ Harold Bauer, Conductor

“The Chaconne might be my favorite piece of music ever written. I love Jennifer’s recording of it, as well as her entire D Minor Partita. Her interpretation leans baroque and you can tell she poured her heart and soul into this work. The Ysaye, Enescu and Kreisler pieces complement the album well. This is Jennifer’s celebration of nearly 50 years of honing her craft and is a remarkable achievement. I will be listening to this album over and over.” ~ Gene Huang, Violinist

“Oh my!! This is most definitely on my list of favorites!! Every selection is absolutely beautiful. The depth of emotion in your performances left me completely in awe.. and anticipation for what was coming up next! Bravo, simply, wonderful!!” ~ Jim Shea, Flutist

    This is a stunning recording! Highly virtuosic playing with lightness and beauty of sound goes hand in hand with a crystal clear and rich tone.

  5. Debi Adams

    What a stunning recording. I have heard these pieces so many times- especially the Partita. Jennifer brings the depth of her soul into this piece which creates pure magic. I cannot get enough if it nor of the Ysaye. This CD is at the top of my listening list. Thank you for such a beautiful gift to humanity!
