Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine, April 2015
The First Concerto is immediately captivating: light, energetic and brightly coloured...Frang has the knack of breathing life into every note, whether by variations in phrasing, attack, tone or dynamic...There are two complimentary personalities at work in the Sinfonia Concertante...Compelling listening throughout, with button-bright sound.

The Times, 20th February 2015
Frang always stays lithe, clean and nimble. So does her lively accompanying British ensemble, Jonathan Cohen's Arcangelo...If you want your Mozart honest and durable, without fancy frills, look no further.

The Observer, 8th February 2015
Frang is a brilliant arrival on the violin scene...Her extrovert personality shines through in the rarely heard Mozart first violin concerto... Jonathan Cohen's direction makes the most of the breathtakingly original textures of [the K364] duo concerto.

Financial Times, 1st February 2015
Vilde Frang plays the first and fifth with a vitality that is fitting for the music of a precocious teenager.

Following the success of her albums of Romantic and Late Romantic repertoire, Vilde Frang has recorded Mozart's Concertos Nos. 1 and 5 'Turkish' and the Sinfonia Concertante K364, enabling music lovers to hear the Norwegian violinist perform Classical repertoire on disc for the first time. The impetus for this album was a 2012 orchestral tour of Asia conducted by Jonathan Cohen in which Vilde performed Mozart's Violin Concerto No. 5. The vibrancy of their musical collaboration was something both artists were keen to repeat and commit to disc. Vilde Frang is joined by Jonathan's Cohen's chamber orchestra, Arcangelo, and by violist Maxim Rysanov in the Sinfonia Concertante.
