This review is from: Stravinsky: Violin Concerto, Circus Polka; Honegger: Pacific 231; Martin: Violin Concerto (Audio CD)
Award-winning violin virtuoso Baiba Skride's latest recording is in conjunction with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales under the baton of Thierry Fischer. The entire recording is an hour-long scintillating mixture of Ms Skride and orchestra performing Igor Stravinsky's four movement Concerto for Violin and Orchestra in D and Frank Martin's 3 movement Concerto for Violin and Orchestra, plus the National Orchestra of Wales performs Arthur Honegger's locomotive train-inspired "Pacific 231", his dramatic sonic picture of the sport of "Rugby", and Stravinsky's "Circus Polka (For A Young Elephant)" with it's humorous pachyderm-inspired waltz sections. The entire recording is excellent and the 'best of the best' include the dramatic Skride violin soliloquy in the allegro tranquillo movement of Martin's concerto, the heightened drama of the violin and orchestra dynamics in the sensational Andante molto moderato movement of Martin's concerto and the NOW's soaring performance of Honegger's "Rugby". Highly Recommended. (10 tracks; Time- 58 minutes: 43 seconds. Booklet in English, German, and French. Ms Skride is now playing the 1734 "Ex Baron Feilitzsch" Stradivarius)
