Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Magazine
This performance...reveals Baiba Skride as the complete violinist, with an exceptionally precise, reliable technique, splendid tone and presence, and discerning musicianship, who makes the quietest moments tell. And her playing is complemented by a sympathetic, finely balanced accompaniment.

John Quinn, MusicWeb International
It's soon clear that Baiba Skride is going to give an intensely poetic, singing account of the solo part [of the Concerto]. Her technique sounds flawless - as one would expect at this level - but I really admired the consistency of her tone, especially above the stave, as well as her ability to sustain the line.
