Notes & Reviews:

Hadelich's sensational debut on Avie Records, Flying Solo, catapulted him into an adoring circle of fans that helped drive the album into the Billboard Classical Chart. Alongside major debuts with the Cleveland Orchestra and the New York Philharmonic, major features in The New Yorker, New York Times, and Los Angeles Times propelled Augustin's media profile to an all-time high. Now he presents the riveting Echoes of Paris, his first chamber recording. CBS Sunday Morning profile (TBC), upcoming interviews with Travel & Leisure and The Strad.

"Outstanding musicianship separates Augustin Hadelich from the pack." - Gramophone

"A luscious tone and an Old World grace." - Los Angeles Times

"A rich programme superbly played by German violinist Augustin Hadelich and his pianist, Robert Kulek. All four composers were associated with Paris, but their different musical languages are perceptively accented here. No matter that Prokofiev wrote his Second Violin Sonata back in Russia: it adds another strand of colour to a winning recital." The Telegraph, 11th February 2011 *****

"For my money, Prokofiev's Second Sonata, transcribed by David Oistrakh from the original for flute, always sits more happily in its version for violin, particularly when played with the eloquence and sense of space exhibited here." Sunday Times, 13th February 2011 ***
