Notes and Editorial Reviews
“Baráti captures the fiery and yet mercurial character of the first movement's cadenza with some dazzling playing...pianist Gabor Farkas never falters in dispatching the fearsome multiple chords abounding in all four movements and the duo make light of Korngold's dense textures, with the measured endings to the outer movements finely drawn.”

– Gramophone

“Hungarian violinist Kristof Baráti has a laser-sharp feel for the style this music really demands...Baráti's bright, forward, searing tone, high adrenaline and lack of extraneous nonsense brings out the heroic qualities in the work; this feels like a macho performance in the best sense.”

– BBC Music Magazine
