Notes and Editorial Reviews
REVIEWS:
BBC Music (5/98, pp.66-67) - Performance: 4 (out of 5), Sound: 4 (out of 5) - "...Long melodic lines, sung by the violin, generate the dialectic of the [violin] concerto; its dedication to the victims of the Holocaust gives an elegiac cast to the whole work, and the hint of Alban Berg's own Violin Concerto that filters through the last movement only sharpens its sense of loss and retrospection, which the soloist Ulf Hoelscher crystallises exactly..."
