Notes & Reviews:

Winner of the Group Edmond de Rothschild award at the 2012 Sommets Musicaux de Gstaad, Korean violinist Soo-Hyun Park makes her recording debut with this program of virtuoso works for violin and orchestra by Wieniawski, Conus and Vieuxtemps. Joined by the Deutsche Staatsphilharmonie Rheinland-Pfalz conducted by Nicholas Milton, Park plays Wieniawski's first Violin Concerto, the E minor Violin Concerto by Conus and Vieuxtemps's fiendishly difficult Fantasia appassionata.

BBC Music Magazine, April 2013
Vigorous playing in these Romantic showpieces, although greater tonal weight and focus is needed, especially in the lyrical moments.

Gramophone Magazine, April 2013
Soo-Hyun Park embraces all the challenges without turning a hair, and also contrives to give Wieniawski's passagework an expressive and poetic quality...Park's reflective approach to the Vieuxtemps results in a beautiful performance that's certainly not short of vivacity but maybe it doesn't capture the work's extrovert theatricality...The accompaniments, too, are excellent.

The Strad, April 2013
A winning lyrical approach to a trio of virtuoso showpieces ... a naturally balanced recording round out a fine release.
