5.0 out of 5 stars A cd that has caused me to love rather than admire Ms. Fischer's playing..., 3 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sarasate (Audio CD)
A few years ago, you couldn't buy a classical cd magazine without finding an advertisement for Julia Fischer playing the Bach sonatas and partitas on the back page. Goodness knows how many copies of these discs Pentatone had to sell to afford this media coverage but it must have been a lot! Intrigued, I did buy them and was ever so slightly disappointed by them. Her playing was fantastic but there was, to my ears, an ever so slightly disengaged quality to the Music making.

Well, that impression does NOT apply here! This is a cd to make anyone smile. The virtuosity on display here is breathtaking and it sounds as if the musicians were actually having FUN playing this repertoire. Perhaps there isn't quite the wink of the eye that Itzhak Perlman brings to this music it there is a smile in the sound and approach that is appealing.

Highlights? Well, all of it really and although 'Zigeunerweisen' is a work that I'd cheerfully never hear again this performance almost makes it sound new. Sarasate wrote many little compositions so, hopefully, this will be volume one.

Get it!
