Reviews of the previously released individual CDs in this set:

Music for Violin and Orchestra Vol 1

This cleanly played, enthusiastically accompanied, and clearly recorded album deserves a strong recommendation.

A sensational, talented young violnist. She has technique to burn. Best of all, she has a beautiful tone in cantabile phrases and a really seductive way with rubato that conveys emotion without distorting the rhythm.

– ClassicsToday

Music for Violin and Orchestra Vol 3


Tianwa Yang plays marvelously, fearlessly, and with great freshness and verve. Few projects in recent days have proven themselves more lovable than this series.

– ClassicsToday

Despite doing without any of his most popular pieces, this third installment of Sarasate's music for violin and orchestra makes a most attractive program. Yang is splendidly equipped as a Sarasate violinst, with her clear tone, pure intonation, impressive dexterity, and light touch. Her playing is consistently lovely, capturing an essential part of the music's spirit.

– Gramophone

Music for Violin and Orchestra Vol 4

Authoritative and thoroughly convincing. Urgently recommended, like the rest of Yang’s series.
