Notes & Reviews:

Max Bruch is perhaps the most famous one-work composer, enjoying worldwide fame for his Violin Concerto in g, op. 26, with almost everything else he wrote more or less falling into oblivion. Nevertheless, Bruch continues to hold many a rewarding discovery in store, which is why cpo espouses his cause. This new recording of Bruch’s complete violin and orchestra oeuvre, featuring the NDR Radio Philharmonic and gifted violinist Antje Weithaas, rouses these sleeping beauties. The disc also includes the great Serenade, in actuality Bruch’s fourth violin concerto, and the gripping In Memoriam.

American Record Guide, March/April 2016
Concerto 1 has been recorded by everybody - really, the competition is huge and overwhelming. It starts with Heifetz, Suk, and Accardo - and there are three or four more that I consider top choices. In the Serenade there is much less competition, and I really like her playing - again the quiet portions are most persuasive. She lets the music speak; she doesn't "goose" it. On the other hand, Salvatore Accardo is hard to beat in this music, as in In Memoriam - if you can find his recordings.
