After another round of musical chairs, both the violinist and conductor here, who were signed by Sony, have jumped to DG. In America at least, Lisa Batiashvili hasn't attracted major notices, but clearly she belongs in the top echelon of young female violinists who follow in the footsteps of Mutter, Midori, Chung, and Hahn. Whether or not she becomes a star on their order of magnitude, Batiashvili steps forward boldly here with a mixed program of very satisfying choices, both for newcomers and experienced collectors. Here's the whole program, split between violin and orchestra and violin with piano:
Kancheli:
V & V for violin and taped voice with string orchestra

Pärt:
Spiegel im Spiegel

Rachmaninov:
Vocalise, Op. 34 No. 14

with Hélène Grimaud (piano)

Shostakovich:
Violin Concerto No. 1 in A minor, Op. 99

Lyric Waltz (Dances of the Dolls)

Now that the Shostakovich Cto. #1 has become standard fare in the concert hall everywhere, violinists rush to say something new, or at least on a par with the greats who have preceded them, in particular David Oistrakh and Maxim Vengerov. I'd also rate young Sergey Khachatryan's recording as one of the most powerful and original. All three are intensely emotional, but on that count Batiashvili must contend with the coolness of her conductor, Salonen, who smooths out the textures and makes Shstakovich's writing elegant and understated. Thus a first movement that is serenely without mystery and a Scherzo that is quick on its feet but not biting or slashing. the soloist seems to be like-minded, so there's no clash of temperaments.

This is one of the great interpretations of the Shostakovich Violin Concerto, splendidly supported by Salonen and the Bavarian Radio Symphony. All the despair and wry commentary that Shostakovich wrote into the piece are developed clearly and starkly by Batiashvili. She may be young, but she captures the mood of the times when Shostakovich wrote the concerto and delivers the piece with strength and commitment.

Among the other well chosen pieces on the disc, I particularly enjoyed the Arvo Part "Spiegel im Spiegel" which she plays with Helene Grimaud on piano. If you do not like the Minimalist style of Part's music, think again and listen to this charming and attractive music.

Without question this is a recording to be recommended and listened to often.

Format: Audio CD
Lisa Batiashvili is both a musician's musician and a performer's performer. While that may sound like empty praise, being in the concert hall with her begins with the impressive stage presence and beauty of this young violinist born in Tbilisi, Georgia in 1979 then her obvious communication with orchestra and conductor (Batiashvili performed with Esa-Pekka Salonen and the Los Angeles Philharmonic a couple of seasons ago to enthusiastic audience response) and her complete involvement with the composer whose work she is performing - it simply all comes together.

This is a superb recording both in content and in execution. She opens with the Shostakovich Violin Concerto no. 1 in A minor, plumbing the depths of the pathos of the piece while being able to make the puckish elements dance. This is followed by a rarely played work by fellow Georgian composer Giya Kancheli, 'V & V', a fascinating work the composer describes as follows: 'In my third symphony the vocal part was performed and recorded by a famous Georgian popular singer - Mr. H. Gonashvili. The uniqueness and distinctiveness of his voice (Mr. H. Gonashvili tragically died in an accident in 1988) have inspired me to use the recording of his voice in my new composition "V&V." In this relatively small piece I tried to confront the Eternal (the Divine voice) and the Real (the soloing violin and the string orchestra).' Thus this is a work for taped voice, violin and orchestra and the mood is mesmerizing.

After a performance of Shostakovich's 'Lyrical Waltz from Seven Dolls', a slight but entertaining bit of fluff, Batiashvili collaborates with Esa-Pekka Salonen (close friends and frequent musical partners) and the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra for these works.

I like Hilary Hahn's cool performance of the first movement of Shostakovich Violin Concerto No. 1 in A minor op. 77 Mendelssohn & Shostakovich: Violin Concertos. But I like Lisa Batiashvili's first movement of Shostakovich better than Hahn's, because Batiashvili's first movement has a beautiful contrast. That is, the first movement has three parts and the middle part of them is tranquillo played with a mute and I think it should be played contrasted. Batiashvili's first movement has a beautiful contrast, but Hahn plays it thin.

However, the second movement of Batiashvili isn't good. In the second movement Batiashvili lacks the contrast of the triple and quadruple time and she has no rhythmics here. In the first movement Esa - Pekka Salonen supports her very well. But, doesn't he make it inefficiently in the second movement? His support isn't clear in the fourth movements too. I don't feel an impact as I feel in Hahn's remarkable fourth movement, though Batiashvili plays the passacaglia and cadenza well. After all, the conducting of Salonen in the movements with fast tempi might not suit my taste.
