Notes & Reviews:

Violinist Augustin Hadelich is one of the fastest-rising stars of his generation. With three critically acclaimed and Billboard-charting releases on AVIE to his credit, he now delivers what promises to be one of the most important concerto recordings of the year, pairing the Violin Concertos by Jean Sibelius and Thomas Ades, the latter only the second recording of the composer's work. On this disc, Augustin is superbly supported by Hannu Lintu conducting the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra.

International Record Review, May 2014
[Hadelich] is ceaselessly engaged in the grand Romantic manner without ever getting bogged down...Here, you feel, is a real artist thinking things through, responding to the notes with flair, lyricism and some very full, rich tone...The famously improved Liverpool orchestra makes a very positive contribution under the excellent Hannu Lintu.

BBC Music Magazine, May 2014
This is a disc which grows in stature on each hearing.

Financial Times, 13th April 2014
You can be in no doubt [that the AdFs] is a masterpiece, its shape and ecstatic lyricism rooted in tradition but with an irresistible modern edge...Hadelich and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic are less intense in the outer movements, but their approach pays dividends in the slow movement which, at nearly a minute longer, is wonderfully mysterious and reflective.
