By JB on December 13, 2013
Patricia Kopatchinskaja's star is currently very much in the ascendant, this recording coming off the back of the UK Gramophone Record of the Year in Bartok: Concerto No. 2 / Eotvos: Seven / Ligeti: Violin Concerto and, before that, the critically acclaimed Beethoven: Violin Concerto. Kopatchinskaja's difference seems to be in being able to effortlessly re-assess a work, discarding previous performance directives and letting spontaneous inspiration win out over any learning by rote. It also might have something to do with a background steeped in the folk traditions of her Moldovan homeland, the sounds of nature resounding more strongly than those of any pedagogical tradition. Whatever, her readings of these two 20c warhorses are - again - unpredictable but ultimately overwhelmingly persuasive.

The Stravinsky concerto was constructed with the violinistic help of the young Pole Samuel Dushkin, who also gave the first performance. Dushkin was taken aback by the extremely widely spaced chord with which the composer insisted on beginning each of the four movements: Stravinsky sketched it on a napkin over a lunch in Paris and Dushkin immediately pronounced it unplayable. Having tried it out however, Dushkin discovered that it was possible after all, and that was the catalyst for the creation of the piece. Kopatchinskaja finds a percussiveness but also a wistfulness, the contrasts becoming kaleidoscopic as the Russian spirit collides and splinters against the neo-classical form.

Patricia Kopatchinskaja flies under the radar, but is one of the best violinists of her generation. After winning the Gramophone award for album of the year for her readings of Bartók, Eötvös and Ligeti, I hope that more people will seek out this Stravinsky/Prokofiev pairing, as well as her great versions of the Beethoven concerto and her chamber recordings.

As for this album. Wonderful, vibrant, youthful and with great support by Jurowski and the pros of the LPO. Highly recommended!
