Notes and Editorial Reviews

This pairing of concertos by Tchaikovsky and Bartók is the 24-year old Ukrainian violinist Valeriy Sokolov’s first CD release as an exclusive Virgin Classics artist. Recorded in Autumn 2010 with the Tonhalle Orchester conducted by David Zinman, this new concerto programme combines great works from the 19th and 20th centuries, both containing elements of folk music.

"Sokolov's violin playing requires every superlative in the dictionary," said the UK’s Classic FM Magazine, in 2010, while The Strad described one of his performances as "full of effective contrasts, steel alternating with velvet … his sound sumptuous when he gave it free rein and thrilling when high on the G string. It was dramatic and
Read more exhilarating, and bound together by a firm sense of direction."
