"These are performances which compel us to listen—not merely to marvel at the virtuosity—because of the artfulness of both players and composer. Tartini filled his sonatas to the brim with musical and technical ideas, strung together like pearls... The effortless grace with which [Wallfisch] performs—carefully attending to the demands of the music, yet at the same time delivering them with an impromptu air—is surely in the tradition of Tartini's celebrated pupil Maddalena Lombardini Sirmen (1745–1818). Neither is simply a virtuosa. The French found in Lombardini Sirmen's playing ''Truthfulness, purity and graciousness''; the English described her performances as ''truly chaste, without any of those
Read more unnecessary and extravagant liberties, which the generality of Solo players on the Violin too frequently give into''. My impressions of Wallfisch's playing—whether here, in concert with the Purcell Quartet or performing the Corelli Op. 5—are remarkably similar...The spaciousness and warmth of Wallfisch's interpretation of movements such as the opening of the D major and the second B flat Sonatas, the lightness with which she carries off difficult passages in quick movements (the first Allegro of the A major and the finale of Op. 5 No. 6, in particular) and the elegance of her tempos all serve to illuminate Tartini's music. Her companions in the Locatelli Trio provide the perfect foil for her artistry, sensitive and apposite." -- Gramophone Read less
