Charlie Siem is an highly accomplished violinist who displays his considerable talents to great advantage in this, his first recording with the LSO under Andrew Gourlay. The programme is an interesting one comprising the Bruch, which is given an elegant performance full of sweetness and strength, the Wienawski,which is a virtuoso tour de force negotiated with ease by Siem, and,as a fill-up,a very interesting work by Siem's compatriot - Indeed, they are apparently related -Ole Bull. I found much to enjoy in this short work which has a very individual voice from a composer little known outside Norway.

Norway has produced some very fine Violin Virtuosi and we are lucky today to have artists like Siem and Henning Kraggerud around on the international circuit. I hope Siem in the future will explore more interesting repertoire from Norway, perhaps Halvorsen's concerto would be a possibility as well as the more established favourites. However this new album is very fine indeed and I look forward to future recordings from this talented young man.

I heard Charlie Siem perform Bruch and Vaughan Williams' The Lark Ascending earlier this week, he was outstanding, particularly inThe Lark Ascending. Life has been kind, he has a great talent, a virtuoso violinist with `pop star' good looks! This album is one that is personal to him, the video on Amazon is a good introduction to him and this new album, and should you like what you hear, his previous album is definitely also worth investing in. It is great to see the emerging young stars in Classical music and Charlie Siem is one of the brightest and most promising.

Bought as a gift and the recipients seemed pleased. Nothing much more to say than that but had more words to type before I could press submit!

Well done, Charlie! Some may say his interpretation of Wieniawski's well-loved concertos is too tepid and boring, but I say he didn't overdo it and attack the concertos with too much showmanship like many young immature players do. He plays with his heart and showed restraint while flashing out all the parts in the concertos that combines successfully finesse and sensitivity. So well done, Charlie! Ole Bull's cantabile was a surprising and deliberate addition in this CD and I personally think it's the highlight this album!
