Notes & Reviews:

Among the more original of today's young violinists, Ilya Gringolts' third album tackles two twentieth century masterworks and displays his daring technique and sophisticated musicianship. The Sibelius Violin Concerto ranks among the most prominent concertos in violin literature because of its extremely difficult solo part coupled with beautiful melody lines. Prokofiev's first violin concerto with its alterating of lyrical grotesque themes gives the soloist many ways of expression.
