Jennifer Pike triumphs in otherwise mediocre selection,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sibelius: Violin Concerto & other orchestral works (Audio CD)
Superb playing of the concerto by Jennifer. Sensitive but demonstrating the bravado needed for this horrendously difficult work. I am won over by a piece that I had thought previously not to be of his highest calibre. It would have been nice to have had accompanying works on the disc which reflected Sibelius's stature rather than a collection of his less impressive pieces. Tapiola and other such glorious poems would have been a perfect accompaniment to Ms Pike's triumphal interpretation.
