Dvořák: Violin Concerto & Piano Quintet

Sarah Chang (violin), Wolfram Christ (viola), Georg Faust (cello), Alex Kerr (violin)

(Violin Concerto: London Symphony Orchestra; Sir Colin Davis; Sarah Chang, violin)

It’s an all-round winner of a disc, with superlative playing from both soloist and orchestra, and a recorded sound to match. Andsnes’s view of the music is fairly traditional…[his] pedalling is a shade cautious, but he plays the piece so beautifully that there are no grounds for complaint…Overall, this looks set to be a highly enjoyable journey.
