Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Despite the advocacy of Nathan Milstein and Itzhak Perlman, Goldmark's only violin concerto remains a marginal item. It is written in an attractive late-romantic style with a lot of impressive, idiomatic difficulties for the soloist, but it does meander somewhat. Now that we can stop marveling at Chang the young prodigy and consider her as a mature artist, her interpretation of this concerto bears comparison with the best. She plays with great suavity and refinement; she has a clear conception of what she wants, and plays it dazzlingly. She is very well seconded by the venerable Cologne orchestra under its American conductor, and they are all realistically recorded. The problem with the disc is that it comprises only the concerto and a long concert overture that probably won't interest most listeners very much. And Bronislaw Gimpel's antique recording of the concerto (in a super-bargain Vox set), while not nearly as well recorded, is probably more approachable as a performance; Gimpel really sells the concerto, playing with more overt romanticism. Still, Chang's many fans (including this reviewer) will certainly enjoy her playing here, while wishing they'd been offered more of it. --Leslie Gerber

The 1990s has been somewhat kind to Goldmark's music. His symphonies have been well recorded, particularly by Yodani Butt with the Philharmonia (ASV), while his chamber music is getting noticed (not excluding his Suites for Violin and Piano well executed by Wallin and Canino under CPO). Record companies have been re-issuing great recordings of his Rustic Wedding Symphony under Abravanel and Bernstein while others kept recordings of his works from deletion (including Hungaroton's recording of "Die Koniga von Sheba").

This new EMI album of Goldmark's Violin Concerto and overture/symphonic poem "Prometheus Bound" provides a wonderful continuation in the promotion of his music. And what a marvelous performance violinist Sarah Chang gives us in the Concerto. In terms of meeting with some of most virtuosic demands the Concerto calls for, Sarah Chang is not behind Itzhak Perlman's performance (EMI with Previn & the Pittsburgh Symphony). Chang's flexibility and approach is nothing but admirable here, and I am especially awed at the warmth she displays at subtle, airy passages in the allegro moderato movement. There's something magical here and even in the Andante where the elegance in the playing is arresting. Perlman's approach is perhaps a shade sterner, but Chang opts for balance and delicacy and it pays off. James Conlon and the Gurzenich-Orchestra Kolner Philharmonic give their vivid, warm, and artful support, and comes up huge and persuasively in "Promotheus Bound"

Despite the fame of the Concerto (Milstein's advocacy is largely responsible for this), the recordings are surprising scarce. But this new one here with Sarah Chang and James Conlon with Gurzenich-Orchestra Kolner Philharmonic does this work a great favor (and justice). A very welcoming disc indeed.

ALthough some may find this cd not economical as it only has the Goldmark concerto on record,this cd is nevertheless the best that Sarah has ever recorded. Here is an extremely talented artist who seems to possess an innate affinty for music.Her wonderfully unique tone,warm in the lower registers and shining brightly in the higher tessituras,coupled with her pleasing phrasings throughout the piece never fail to amaze the listener.In this case,she doesnt just amaze but she moves hearts and grabs the attention with full vibrato in certain phrases,and more aggressive bow strokes than her previous recordings,giving rise to impassioned playing that seamlessly shifts from that of noble melancholy to venomous outbursts of fury. If there is any cd that bears testament to the transition of Sarah Chang from prodigy to a mature artist,it has to be this disc.Major changes in tone from the sweet innocent sounding voice she had when she was young to the darker n fuller sounds shes got today,more assertive bowing coupled with a perfectly controlled vibrato and...as well as that special something inside Sarah which makes this piece almost sound like its been tailored for her!She does seem to have total understanding of this Goldmark Concerto....and she uses this to the fullest extent in playing of moving emotional intensity...when I hear Sarah,i always expect something deeply emotional,and this cd has been more than i expected. Lyrical in nature,it may not have the catchy melodies that of mendelsohnn and the bruch.I had slight trouble adjusting to Sarah's new tone and bowing as well as this rather uncommon work after being conditioned by her previous recordings...but after you get used to it...You'll love Goldmark's only violin concerto and Sarah. :)

There are some works of music that seem so inspired that its incredulous how the composer could have thought of such great tunes himself... The same applies to this very performance...Ive heard many cds...and Sarah is really in a class of her own.Obviously so;she never had to go through any of those violin competitions.Shes the most natural violinist. The same nine yr old girl who released her debut album MUST be gifted in a very very natural way.Hearing is Believing...her playing is inspired naturally.Even more so in this very recording of the Goldmark...I strongly recommend this album to any TRUE lover of music...music being defined as something truthful from the heart....its really amazing how Sarah will sound in another 10 yrs time.... i apologise for this informality...but words was never my preferred form of communication. :)

I heard this piece Goldmark's Violin concerto, as I was making a long drive and it lifted me up so much! I ordered it right away. It's beautifully interpreted by the virtuosos and the recording is superb. I recommend it.
