Review By David Gutman,Gramophone,October 2013

However fierce the competition in the concertos, which have been strongly represented on record since the days of Joseph Szigeti and Jascha Heifetz (in the First and Second respectively), James Ehnes’s particular combination of matchless virtuosity, sweet tone, flowing tempi and interpretative restraint suits all this music down to the ground.


Review By Michael Cookson,MusicWeb International,September 2013

I found the excellent sound quality of the concertos from the BBC Studios at MediaCityUK vividly clear and splendidly balanced. From Potton Hall the chamber works are agreeably if not strikingly recorded.

This is an outstanding Chandos set from James Ehnes of Prokofiev’s complete works for violin. It includes quite stunning performances of the two violin concertos. © 2013 MusicWeb International Read complete review
