Notes & Reviews:

Pierre Rode was the star pupil of Viotti (the greatest violinist of the day), in time becoming the leading exponent of the French Violin School. A great virtuoso - he premièred Beethoven's last Violin Sonata - he composed exclusively for his own instrument and his thirteen concertos, along with his Caprices, are his greatest compositional legacy. The Violin Concerto No. 2 is notable for its contrasts between challenging virtuosity and lyrical interludes, whilst Concerto No. 8 is one of his most beautiful works, with long-breathed melodies and dramatic flourishes. This is the fourth of five volumes containing all thirteen of Rode's Violin Concertos.

American Record Guide, March/April 2016
Pierre Rode was a pupil of Viotti and a great star of the French school of violin. Paganini, who seldom played anything by anyone other than himself, did play Rode concertos. And Rode does sound a lot like Paganini. Other copiers of Paganini are Beriot and Lipinski. I like Beriot the best. I could live without Rode, as long as I have Paganini. If you don't like Paganini, you are not likely to respond to Rode. Violinists will like this music, I think, because it is full of challenges to technique and amazing feats. Steven Haller reviewed two earlier recordings in this series; you should read those reviews if you think you might like this music (May/June 2009; Jan/Feb 2012). The two sets of variations are on the Paisiello aria 'Non so Piu' and "on a Tyrolean Air".
