Product Description

Product Description

Hot on the heels of her stunning debut recording for Sony Classical (Sibelius & Lindberg Violin Concertos), the Georgian violinist Lisa Batiashvili's new solo album promises to garner the same high level of critical success.

Hailed as one of the most exciting musicians of her generation "Dazzling..." (The Daily Telegraph); "...lavish virtuosity" (The Financial Times); her eagerly-awaited follow-up sees Batiashvili, internationally regarded as a superb interpreter of the classical repertoire and a decided champion of new music, in another adventurous collaboration with her trademark twist of unusual pairings: this time Beethoven's Violin Concerto with the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen coupled with Miniatures by Georgian composer Sulkhan Tsintsadze (1925-1991) featuring the Georgian Chamber Orchestra. Most unusually, both orchestras are directed by Ms Batiashvili herself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Transcendental violin playing 6 Dec 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is currently my favourite disc.I bought it, knowing what an exceptional musician she is and was not disappointed. The Georgian music which accompanies the concerto is a delightful suite of dances but the Beethoven is a revelation. It is played with freshness and poise and extraordinary tonal beauty. Her playing is so absorbing that I was lost to the world.Her accuracy is incredible but it is the way she makes every phrase sounds new-minted yet as natural as breathing that holds you spellbound. This is a very special disc worth buying even if you already have other performances.There are many gifted violinists performing at the moment but she is far more than that, this is inspired playing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Beethoven 11 July 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have enjoyed hearing Beethoven's violin concerto played with a chamber orchestra accompaniment since I bought Frank Peter Zimmermann's performance with the ECO back in the late 1980's. This disc gives you a great performance from soloist and orchestra with very good balanced sound. The soloist is neither too spotlit or recessed. This is very different from your regular big band Beethoven but all the better for it. While the coupling may not be to everyone's taste at least it's different from the run of the mill. I prefer this Beethoven to Janine Jansen's (with the same orchestra) due to its more natural recording balance. Very enjoyable disc from a wonderful soloist and orchestra.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning Beethoven 1 Jun 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I don't think there is any need to go into technical details and I will say it right from the start. This is a wonderful performance, thrilling in every respect, and arguably one of the best available at any price. I have over twenty different versions of this timeless masterpiece and Batiashvili's performance remains strong even against the toughest competition. But that doesn't mean that it is the best among so many fine or great performances. In fact, it would be very difficult to pick one recording as the best from a large number of recordings available in the discography for Beethoven's great concerto. Some of these recordings deserve to be called legendary. Try for instance those by Oistrakh/Cluytens, Grumiaux/Davis, Heifetz/Munsch. Of the modern digital recordings, those by Repin/Muti, Faust/Abbado, Jansen/Jarvi, Hahn/Marriner, Kyung Wha Chung/Tennsdedt are particularly impressive. In short, it would be a tough choice if you go for one single recording. In any event, Batiashvili's account will not disappoint. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Performance and Recording!!! 29 Sep 2009
By nmollo VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
This is a wonderful performance of Beethoven's Violin Concerto and probably the best recording out there. Lisa Batiashvili has that all important talent that is so needed when playing the music of Beethoven and that is natural rhythm.

The Georgian composer Sulhkan Tsintsadze is also featured on this CD and his work is new to me but a delight particularly "Suliko" which sounds as if it is based on a traditional folk song or dance.

Also as a side note there is a piece by Tsintsadze called "Tzin Tzkaro" that seems to have been a major influence on Kate Bush's Hounds Of Love album and particularly the song "Hello Earth".

This is the best classical album around at the moment!!! Love it!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Classical album of the year 4 Dec 2008
Format:Audio CD
A terrific version of Beethoven's Violin Concerto, but the revelation is in the Miniatures of Georgian composer Sulhkan Tsintsadze. Rich and exotic, based on traditional songs and folk music.

A great blend of Georgian and German traditions, beautifully played.
