Notes and Editorial Reviews

"...Amoyal plays this extremely demanding music with his own blend of secure technique and expressive spontaneity, and the symbiosis between his emotional involvement and Boulez's detached control, furthering textural precision, serves the work well. Indeed, I can recall no performance of the Violin Concerto that has kept the work's larger and more local concerns in better balance..." -- Arnold Whittall, Gramophone [5/1986] "...Amoyal plays this extremely demanding music with his own blend of secure technique and expressive spontaneity, and the symbiosis between his emotional involvement and Boulez's detached control, furthering textural precision, serves the work well.
