5.0 out of 5 stars stimulating ..., 25 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Beethoven: Violin Concerto, Romances, Fragment Concerto (Audio CD)
We have had quite a number of Beethoven Concerto records by relatively new and talented violinists of late and this is a particularly stimulating example. Kopatchinskaja is first and foremost an intelligent musician and her account of the Beethoven is, as well as being attractively played, fresh and full of interesting interpretive ideas. It dares to be different and is yet convincing and true. Is it compelling? Perhaps not to the extent that the very greatest performances are but it is very satisfying. I doubt I would have even asked the "compelling?" question were it not for the fact that I was recently listening to the also recent Faust/Abbado version (and that, although less intellectual, is compelling).

For this CD, I would say that satisfying plus stimulating (plus keenly priced) together equal a compelling case for wanting to own this CD. The fill ups - two Romances equally well played - and an interesting fragment of another Beethoven concerto add to the attractions. Having Herreweghe as the conductor is another considerable bonus.
