Notes & Reviews:
24 year-old Czech violinist Jan Mracek took home the top prize at the 8th International Fritz Kreisler Competition in 2014. For his début album, he has chosen an all Dvorak program featuring the charming and lyrical Violin Concerto, the haunting Romance in F, the Slavonic style Mazurek Op.49 and the charming Four Romantic Pieces Op.75. A graduate of the Prague Conservatory of Music, this emerging artist pays tribute to his countryman.
Gramophone Magazine, August 2016
Mrßcek offers a lusty performance of the infrequently performed Mazurek, Op 49 - both violinist and conductor score maximum points here.
