Notes & Reviews:

Pinchas Zukerman records The Lark Ascending for the first time in over forty years in a magical performance with the Royal Philharmonic. Zukerman plays and conducts a definitive collection of English music: Vaughan Williams' Tallis Fantasia, Elgar's Introduction & Allegro and Serenade for Strings, Salut d'amour, Chanson de Matin and Chanson de Nuit. The album includes the world premiere recording of "In Moonlight," an arrangement for solo viola, strings and harp of Elgar's famous Canto Popolare.

Sunday Times, 6th March 2016
It's 40 years since he tackled VW's The Lark Ascending, and if the bird sounds a bit wiry today, Zukerman still phrases the music with affection.

Gramophone Magazine, April 2016
Readers who see [The Lark Ascending] in terms of sunlit rapture rather than otherworldly transcendence will be well satisfied, not least because Zukerman's fabulous timbre remains a marvel... there's welcome warmth and naturalness in the music-making of a partnership previously undocumented on disc. The selection is generous too, with an interlude of old-school favourites.

BBC Music Magazine, May 2016

BBC Music Magazine, May 2016
Zukerman's violin playing has lost nothing of its masterful immensity, gorgeousness of tone, and likeable directness of manner over the years, and to hear those qualities at work in The Lark Ascending is a memorable experience... there's no trace of portentousness in Zukerman's approach to the vast musical spaces searched out by the Tallis Fantasia; yet this seemingly no-nonsense interpretation has a strongly characterised, tight-reined majesty.
