Notes & Reviews:

The latest release in Hyperion's acclaimed Romantic Violin Concerto series features the brilliant young English violinist Chloë Hanslip, who once again displays her usual insouciant virtuosity and obvious delight in this repertoire. Glazunov's Violin Concerto, written for Leopold Auer, is a masterpiece of violin writing, including a brilliantly effective cadenza by the composer himself. Swiss composer Othmar Schoek is probably best known for his Lieder, but his Concerto quasi una fantasia in B flat major, Op 21 for violin and full orchestra, included here, is his most substantial concert work. The lyric passion and attractiveness of the work's ideas earn it a distinguished place among the violin concertos of the immediate pre-World War I period. Hanslip is accompanied by the Orchestra della Svizzera Italiana led by Alexander Vedernikov.

BBC Music Magazine
Hanslip's radiant artistry and phrasal sensitivity is highly seductive...

The Guardian, 21st February 2013
Chloe Hanslip gives both concertos agile, nicely contained performances, even if the orchestral support under Alexander Vedernikov is rather undistinguished.
