Virtuoso Violin Concertos and Showpieces of the 19th Century
I enjoyed this album very much. It has many tracks that aren't heard too often and it was refreshing to hear something different from the usual, well-loved movements from the "big" violin concertos. I love track 6 - Spanish Dances and it was good to be re-acquainted with Goddard's 2nd Violin Concerto. Great selection for my mp3 player.more....
A very powerful display of deft and nimble finger dexterity!
The choice of tracks here all carry very beautiful tunes. The timbre of the violin is really very inviting and sensuous given the generous spread of vibrato and harmonics.
I loved especially the tracks on the Hungarian and Spanish dances and track 18, La Ronde Des Lutins Op 25. In many of these songs there was ample showmanship - spiccato / marcato pizzicato abound! Brilliant technique!
The fact that these are violin concertos, ie. violin music against an orchestral and/or piano backdrop, makes the music all the more grand and inviting.
Kudos to the wise and careful choice of tracks here. A very enjoyable musical experience, indeed! This spurs me on to listen to more violin music.
