This CD won a critics' award from the 'Gramophone' magazine, and it's no wonder. The Concerto is played with complete conviction and assurance. It's not the very best Dvorak, but it sits well for the violin and is a very attractive piece. Isabelle Faust combines the athleticism of the lively passages with the wistfulness of the more thoughtful ones with great assurance, and she is idiomatically partnered by Jiri Belohlavek, a fine Czech conductor. The Trio is a revelation. I didn't know the piece, but it is glorious, a better work than the Concerto really, and it's played for all it is worth here. Faust may be the Concerto soloist, but in the Trio the work is shared out equally and it is a real chamber performance, beautifully balanced and wonderfully played. This is an outstanding CD, as 'The Gramophone' decided.
