Notes & Reviews:

Regarded as one of the most acclaimed violinists of his generation, Frank Peter Zimmermann brings his intelligence and brilliance to this new album of Mozart's violin concertos and Sinfonia Concertante. Zimmermann's concerts have taken him throughout Europe, Japan, Australia, South America and the United States, and he has collaborated with the finest orchestras in the world. "Zimmermann's poise, sweet expression and unforced athleticism were a constant pleasure, and the ruminative approach into the first-movement cadenza was dovetailing par excellence. Best of all was the relaxed approach to the finale, normally rushed off its feet, but here mercurial and shapely." (classicalsource.com)

Gramophone Magazine, July 2016
These new performances are brisk and no-nonsense in the current fashion, devoid of romantic lingering or interventionist point-making... [they] sound just as youthful as Zimmermann's earlier recordings... the Turkish episode in the Fifth Concerto's finale is flavoured with a pinch of paprika, but not drowned in it.
