Notes and Editorial Reviews


Here’s a performance in which Locatelli appears larger than life – in what we all probably fantasize was his true stature…Even he probably didn’t execute his own highwire acrobatics as breathtakingly as Mela Tenenbaum does here. With a pure singing tone, soaring catabile style, razor-sharp technique, and a lively musical imagination, Tenenbaum has at last spoken an authoritative, if not the absolutely final, word on at least six of the concertos. Like the best of the period –instrument people, she has dared to peel away layers of performing tradition and create a new synthesis. This new synthesis doesn’t eschew the received violinistic mannerisms of the last century; on the
Read more contrary, it integrates the whole historical armamentarium of technical effects. Tenenbaum’s sul ponticello in the caprice to the Second Concerto’s last movement, for example, is as hair-raisingly effective as Ysaye’s similar effect in his second solo sonata.

Anyone who thrills to trills or palpitates at pizzicati should find here the object of his heart;s desire. No one should form an opinion of Locatelli as either a violinist or a composer without hearing these visceral revelations. Highest commendation.
