Spellbinding new talent,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Prokofiev & Sibelius: Violin Concertos (MP3 Download)
I stumbled upon this download in the sub £4 classical section and thought it was worth investigating. Vilde Frang is a 25 year old Norwegian violinist who is in the first few years of what will undoubtedly turn into a glittering career, both as a concerto performer and as a recitalist. She plays a violin from the French 19th century maker Vuillaume and achieves a lovely warm tone across the range of the instrument. I bought this download for the Prokofiev - I already have other recordings of the Sibelius. Both are excellent recordings, displaying a musical maturity well beyond her years. In fact the Sibelius may well become my recording of choice. The WDR Symphony Orchestra under Sondergard accompany with sensitivity and energy in equal measure. A delight to listen to.
