5.0 out of 5 stars not only accomplished - fresh and thoroughly enjoyable
This is an excellent CD. There is always a danger in recording such well-loved and much-performed concerti as these - do we really need another version? - but this CD goes some way beyond 'just another' recording. I particularly like the Tchaikovsky. It is a thoroughly musical performance, absolutely assured technically but presenting the Concerto as a fine piece, not...

2.0 out of 5 stars Good performance, disappointing recording
I bought this on the basis of the many positive comments made here but I was sadly disappointed. The soloist's performance is very good indeed but she is badly let down by one of the worst recordings that I have heard in recent years. The violin microphones are so close that every little finger noise is irritatingly intrusive. Artificial reverberation has then been...

5.0 out of 5 stars Mainly Bruch, 2 Nov. 2011
This review is from: Tchaikovsky: Violin Concerto op35; Bruch: Violin Concerto 1 (Audio CD)
Nicola Benedetti gives brilliant renditions of both Concertos but I freely admit

I bought the CD for the Bruch. Her own view that it is a beautiful piece of music

can be heard in her sensitive and technically brilliant performance.

Peter Allan.

The most accomplished and amazing performance by Ms Benedetti and ably backed up by the Czech Philharmonia. The soloist and the orchestra are beautifully balanced into a magnificent performance that I'm sure Tchaikovsky would have loved.
