Notes and Editorial Reviews

"...In the finale...Udagawa gives a wonderfully freewheeling performance with no undue lingering...This recording gives us all three parts of the Tchaikovsky Souvenir d’un lieu cher, including the then often omitted central c minor Scherzo . That’s more commonly offered now, as, for example, by Julia Fischer and Yakov Kreizberg on their Pentatone recording of the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto and by Gluzman and Litton on their Glazunov/Tchaikovsky coupling. Again Udagawa is a little slower than most in the Scherzo, but there’s no sense of the music dragging and she’s actually faster than Fischer in the opening Méditation, without any sense of undue haste, and she gives a loving account of the closing Mélodie. Nor is the Read more Chausson Poème too drawn-out, though it’s given quite an emotional treatment..." - Brian Wilson, MusicWeb International Read less
