Format: Audio CD
... and loses. But just barely.
Max Bruch wrote many works for violin and orchestra, not just the deservedly famous G Minor Concerto. Salvatore Accardo has recorded nine of these works and does a terrific job. Michael Rabin and Jascha Heifetz (not to mention Itzhak Perlman) recorded the 'Scottish Fantasy' and those recordings have become legendary, for good reason. I prefer that of Rabin even though that recording is now fifty years old. Neither Heifetz nor Perlman is chopped liver. And this Fedotov isn't either, but I have to say it is in fourth place, perhaps slightly ahead of Accardo, but way behind the other three. One thing that I didn't like about his playing--and I will admit it may be an idiosyncrasy on my part--is his fast, tight vibrato which often sounds just slightly sharp to my ears. Technically, he is brilliant. He handles the finale's double-stops as if they were child's play. And he manages well in the Allegro middle movement which conductor Dmitry Yablonsky takes at a breakneck pace. Strangely, this whole performance sounds more Russian than Scottish to me. Of course, Bruch was writing in mainstream mitteleuropäisch style and about the only thing in the 'Fantasy' that is Scottish are the 'Scotch snaps,' heard primarily in the Andante. Still there is something about Fedotov's playing and that of the Russian Philharmonic--perhaps its the over-the-top expressivity--that makes the whole thing sound more Slavic than any other performance I've ever heard. Some might say this could be a good thing. It's a matter of taste, I guess.
When we come to the 'Serenade' we are dealing with a different matter. It is essentially Bruch's fourth violin concerto, and it is almost never played.

I love the 4th and 5th movements of the Fantasy. The rest of it is quite pleasant.

The first and third movements of the Serenade are great, and I very much like the other movements.

Good performance; just a little understated for my taste. The serenade was unknown to me; the Fantasy is certainly the "a" side.

Fedotov takes on Rabin, Heifetz and Accardo ... 3 Feb. 2005
By J Scott Morrison - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
... and loses. But just barely.

Max Bruch wrote many works for violin and orchestra, not just the deservedly famous G Minor Concerto. Salvatore Accardo has recorded nine of these works and does a terrific job. Michael Rabin and Jascha Heifetz (not to mention Itzhak Perlman) recorded the 'Scottish Fantasy' and those recordings have become legendary, for good reason.

Some might say this could be a good thing. It's a matter of taste, I guess.

When we come to the 'Serenade' we are dealing with a different matter. It is essentially Bruch's fourth violin concerto, and it is almost never played. As far as I know the only widely available version is that by Accardo, recorded perhaps twenty years ago. Its style is virtually the same as that of the 'Fantasy' or the G Minor Concerto, even though it was written long after those two. It is perhaps a little less immediately memorable than its better-known siblings, but it's a worthwhile addition to the violin concerto repertoire and deserves to be heard here. Fedotov is a valid exponent of the piece. I am less bothered by Fedotov's vibrato here--maybe that's because my mind's ear doesn't automatically compare him with others as it does in the 'Fantasy'--and this is quite a good reading. Sound in both works, with the violin highlighted, is slightly over-resonant, but the orchestra generally sounds good if not always crystal clear.

So, although this wouldn't be my first choice for the 'Scottish Fantasy' I could recommend it to anyone wanting to hear the 'Serenade' and even to someone otherwise lacking a recording of the 'Fantasy.' And, of course, Naxos's budget price makes a difference as well.

Scintillating 5 Aug. 2008
By David Saemann - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This disc covers a territory that is a connoissieur's feast in violin playing. The Scottish Fantasy is one of the most delectable secondary scores in the violin repertoire. There have been a number of beautiful recordings of it, including two by Heifetz, and one each by Alfredo Campoli, David Oistrakh, and Arthur Grumiaux. The Heifetz and Campoli versions are cut. So Naxos enters the lists with Maxim Fedotov, who one must admit is not quite in the league of these other performers. Nevertheless, he is a very capable player with a vibrato laden tone, and the world would be a lot poorer if only the relics of the glorious past were allowed to record masterpieces. I enjoyed Fedotov in the Fantasy very much. He phrases the big tunes with a degree of abandon that is wholly welcome. The orchestra is superb, not always a given in this work. The tempos chosen are good, not as slow as Oistrakh and not as fast as Heifetz--in sum, a happy mean. The work builds up momentum very convincingly. As for the Serenade, it is a welcome addition to the catalog. It is a tuneful, beautifully constructed work, just as winning in the orchestral part as in the soloist's. Here Fedotov and Yablonsky have very little competition in the catalog. They turn in a sensitive, winning job. They even make the quiet ending of the Serenade seem inevitable. Naxos's sound engineering throughout is excellent. For anyone who cares about virtuoso violin playing, this CD is a great bargain.

I have always loved this music and own the same CD. I bought it for a Scot who didn't know the music. Now she is in love with it too.
