Notes & Reviews:

A child prodigy, Hadelich was educated at Italy's Instituto Mascagni and was poised for a major international career. However, his rapid rise was interrupted by a horrific accident in which he was burned over most of his body. After repeated operations and months of rehab, Hadelich has made an artistic comeback of astonishing proportions. His remarkable strength of character, determination, joy of life, and passion for music meld in a soulful, witty personality who also possesses a rare talent - and all of these qualities shine brightly on his solo debut recording.

Gramophone Magazine
Augustin Hadelich... meets and surmounts all obstacles, yet it's not technical wizardry that most impresses but his musicianship. He makes the musical sense of each piece crystal clear, and his playing has an inner life, each phrase, each note, is felt as it's played.

Sunday Times
Hadelich plays each with supreme confidence, the colours vivid, his bow control as impeccable as his intonation, the overall shaping always convincing, the direction and balance of line always clear...he is both a virtuoso violinist and a deeply thoughtful one.
