Performer Conductor Ensemble Composers

Notes & Reviews:

"We've long needed a good modern recording of Britten's Violin Concerto and here it is at last...Her emotional commitment is evident in every bar, no more so than in the melancholy final section of the passacaglia, as the music winds down to a troubled but resigned close. Equally convincing is the more muscular playing required in the first movement and central scherzo... The accompaniment is as accomplished as anything Hickox has achieved in his Britten discography." ***** -BBC Music
