Intensely beautiful performance of Shostakovich Concerto & the finest 'Spiegel im Spiegel',
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Echoes of time (Audio CD)
I don't know very much about this violinist, but this performance of Shostakovich's 1st Violin Concerto is the most intensely felt and, at the same time, the most beautiful account I've ever come across since I listened to David Oistrakh's recordings. She brings out the inner angst and wistful lyricism of the music with her deeply expressive tone finely balanced with her intellectual focus.
Coupled with the hauntingly evocative music including Giya Kancheli's 'V&V' and the inspired performance of Arvo Pärt's 'Spiegel im Spiegel' (played slower than Tasmin Little's version and finer than Gil Shaham's account), this is well worth adding to your library.
