Notes & Reviews:

Over 5 years ago Korcia recorded an album of "core repertoire" dedicated to Bartok. Here today with a new album the violinist performs one of the most famous pieces in the instrument's repertoire, Tchaikovsky's violin concerto.

"Korcia stamps his individuality on every phrase and wrings every ounce of expression out of the glorious Korngold." -BBC Music Magazine

"Korcia shapes [Korngold's] phrases with warmth and affection - but never at the expense of the concerto rolling onward - through subtleties of tone colour and emotional inflection, always observant of the score's dynamic markings and myriad changes of tempo...this performance balances Tchaikovsky's renowned theatricality with his own sensibility regarding development...A winning pairing of two irresistable concertos." -Gramophone

The Arts Desk
Korcia's delivery of the solo line [in the Korngold] is stunning, but you'll be knocked sideways by the glorious passage in the last movement where massed horns suddenly thrust upwards. It's never sounded fruitier... Korcia's coupling is a boldly drawn, affectionate performance of the Tchaikovsky Concerto... This is the most entertaining violin concerto disc I've heard in months.

International Record Review
Korcia and Kantorow are most exciting, with great rhythmic drive, plenty of dazzling virtuosity and extremely alert accompaniment...Korcia plays the soaring, lyrical opening with a sense of freedom that is captivating and the whole performance is most involving.
