Notes & Reviews:

The 150th birthday of the Danish iconoclastic composer Carl Nielsen is celebrated with the second volume of his works for violin featuring one of Sweden's brightest new violinists, Cecilia Zilliacus joined by the Helsingborg Symphony Orchestra conducted by Daniel Blendulf.

American Record Guide, May/June 2016
Rather than fill out the release with somebody's else's concerto, Zilliacus has sensibly included Nielsen's two pieces for unaccompanied violin, composed in his later years for his (eventual) son-in-law Emil Telmanyi. The Prelude and Theme with Variations, Op. 48, dates from 1922; the Preludio e Presto, Op. 52, is from 1928. Nielsen had earned his living in early years as an orchestral violinist. The composer experiments with form, using his own concept of the theme with- variations idiom, and producing some bracing and provocative sounds in the process. They remind us that Nielsen was learning and growing down into his very last years.

In these two works, not having to compete with an orchestra, Zilliacus can make a convincing show of her formidable technical skills. There have been previous recordings of these two pieces, and slightly more fully digested ones.
