Notes & Reviews:

Since winning the ECHO Klassik Award for his EMI debut album in 2006, Linus Roth has made a name for himself as one of the most interesting violinists of his generation, and as a champion of wrongly forgotten works and composers. His live performances, and his Challenge Classics recording of Mieczyslaw Weinberg's complete works for violin and piano, have brought him both critical and public acclaim. Roth's commitment to Weinberg is now further documented in this recording of Weinberg's Violin Concerto, coupled with Britten's sublime Concerto for violin and orchestra, Op. 15.

The Strad
The dark side of human life conveyed in gripping performances... This new set from Linus Roth and José Gallardo is particularly valuable in that it features all six sonatas, the Sonatina, three early pieces dating from the 1930s, and the Rhapsody on Moldavian Themes... particularly grips the imagination - at times Roth appears to be merely breathing on his 1703 'Dancla' Stradivari as he fearlessly probes Weinberg's harrowing cries of anguish. Not an easy listening experience by any means, but a profoundly moving one."
