This review is from: Nielsen / Tchaikovsky violin concertos (Audio CD)
This is proof that the major labels still have the means to pull a rabbit from the hat. The Nielsen violin concerto ranks along with Sibelius but does not draw the performers or performances it deserves. The fabulously gifted Norwegian Vilde Frang delivers an account of exquisite beauty and dramatic tension captured in a state of the art recording. A greater surprise comes with the Tchaikovsky. So much competition, starting and ending with Heifetz in my experience, but the young lady sweeps the board and makes it her own domain. If you like the 19/20 Century Violin Concerto this disc will please you. Amazon delivered the CD right on the release date and on a price-reduced basis applied to pre-orders.
