Notes & Reviews:

Ondine is pleased to announce the first release with Austrian violinist Benjamin Schmid with a performance of Reger's Violin Concerto and the Chaconne for Solo Violin. This release invites to listen to a captivating performance of Reger's Violin Concerto, a hugely charming big romantic work with broad sentimental gestures.

American Record Guide, March / April 2013
Schmid is more forward with more incisive orchestral backing. The SACD format gives it a strong advantage in sound.

The Guardian, 15th November 2012
Schmid's playing is technically pristine, if cool, while the Tampere Philharmonic under Hannu Lintu opt for clarity rather than depth. The underlying idea, presumably, is to emphasise the classical sinews beneath the post-Romantic surface.
