Product Description

CD Description

Tartini's 5 Violin concertos played by the fine violinist Elizabeth Wallfisch


In every way this disc is superior to any tartini recording I've ever heard:the soloist is in breathtaking form...in the quiet repose sometimes offered by the slow movements she and her wonderful continuo team are as eloquent as can be. one of my favourite discs this month --Early Music Review

The soloist,Elizabeth Wallfisch,strikes a balance between ebullience and refinement.she makes a sweet sound --The Evening Standard

A very adequate historically-informed reading of Tartini, but I've heard Wallfisch play with a bit more verve in her other excellent recordings.

Stylish Performance of Tartini's Violin Concertos 26 Dec. 2010
By David J. Friedlander - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Tartini isn't a really big name in classical music and you won't find him in any top 50 or even top 100 composer lists. His life (1692-1770) rests across the boundries of two major periods in music, the Baroque and Classical. His music reflects this apparent dichotomy and elements of both periods can be found coexisting in his compositions. Overriding this is an inherent sense of style and drama which pushes his music above and beyond the ordinary. There really isn't a boring moment in these concertos. Restless harmonies keep the music in constant motion and give it a tightrope walking unsettled mood. I find this type of creativity invigorating and it keeps your attention and interest without resorting to the obvious pyrotechnics of whizzing scales or motor driven perpetual motion rhythms. Especially praise-worthy is the g minor concerto, Opus 1 no. 1. If this is truly Tartini's first published work, then it must rate as one of the greatest ever initial efforts. The music is strong, assertive and the solo part is sinewy and full of expression.

The sound of the disc is excellent, very clear with much depth and just the right amount of echo to sweeten the sound. Wallfisch is brilliant, with strong tone and impeccable technique. She brings the solo lines out with great certainty and confidence, the proper attitude for this bubbling music. The Raglan Baroque Players under the direction of Nicholas Kraemer are also strong, well rehearsed and bring off the music with exuberence and committment. All in all a very pleasing issue from Hyperion, in line with their usual excellent work. I recommend this highly for Baroque and Classical fans since I feel both will find familiar elements in the music. There is enough vigor and style here that will appeal to every music lover although if your bag is atonal or 'modern 20th century' music, you probably should look elsewhere. There are no tone rows here, just good old fashioned, well crafted tonal music played and recorded about as well as is humanly possible.
