Notes & Reviews:

Martin's composition are impressive for their difficult solo passages and light tonal color. His music is highly regarded but seldom performed.

BBC Music Magazine
Frank Martin's Violin Concertoà has a truly magical aura and effects a compositional mastery that is worthy of the finest 20th-century examples of the genre. This new excellently engineered recording from violinist Michael Erxleben serves the music admirably and benefits from superbly attentive instrumental detail from the Winterthur orchestra under Jac van Steen.
