Notes & Reviews:

"Alsop's structure is secure, she maintains intensity and attention, and the orchestra sounds at home. The violinist's sound is pretty, but it's also quite small. The old Alsop might have overwhelmed Buswell, but here she adapted to the soloist. The result is a trim, sleek, and well thought-out reading, with a touch of dryness that is redolent of a refreshing German Kabinett wine." - Hecht, ARG
