One of the great violinists of his generation, Pablo Sarasate not only inspired concertos and other works for solo violin from the leading composers of his time, but himself contributed to violin repertoire, not least in his operatic fantasies, many of which have suffered neglect since his death. In 2004 the violinist Tianwa Yang was awarded the ‘Star of Tomorrow’ prize of the Volkswagenstiftung (China) from Seiji Ozawa.

“Each piece is beautifully characterized and played with great polish and confidence... Reviewing brings a lot of surprises. You can’t just fall back on big names or favorite recordings. Wonderful new recordings are still made, and this is one of them.” -American Record Guide on Volume 1 of the series (Naxos 8.557767)

Review By Giv Cornfield,The New Recordings, Cliffs Classics,November 2007

This form of music was popular around the mid- to late-19th century, long before radio and records. The twenty-year-old Tianwa Yang is a phenomenally gifted violinist, who takes to this (and, one would suspect to any genre of) music like a fish to water. She plays with a bold assurance and hair-raising, sparkling technique. A real tour de force!

Review By David Denton, Naxos,November 2007

It might seem perverse in reviewing a disc of violin showpieces to open with some words on the young German pianist, Markus Hadulla, an accompanist of rare distinction that can add something very special to a soloist. Studying in Paris and New York he was invited by Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau to join his lieder class in Berlin. He is such an attentive and intuitive partner who moves so unobtrusively with tempo inflections of the soloist, yet when given the opportunity, as in the Homenaje a Rossini he easily slips into the major part with playing that really sparkles. As with the Liszt disc reviewed above, these showpieces were intended for the Spanish-born virtuoso, Pablo Sarasate, to excite his audience with a show of outgoing pyrotechnics in his concert appearances
