Once, while sitting at home, I lamented to my father how difficult I found it to find truly beautiful violin pieces that echoed the work of Bruch, one of my favourite composers. Without any hesitancy he reached into his vast collection and introduced me to the Pibroch Suite. I was immediately hooked. The long, strained notes of the first movement immediately reminding me of the first time I heard Bruchs adagio from the second concerto. In this piece however the wonderfully smooth violin playing switches into folk tunes dancing with joy. The violin concerto is also a superb piece, played in a similar vain. The slow pieces are romantic melodies that will make you smile, warmly. The influence of traditional Scottish tunes is never far away though. The recording, as always with Hyperion is first class and, for me the violinist captures exactly the right tone for the music almost insisting that we accept the beauty of this music. As always when I discover a little known artist capable of such beauty, I wonder who decided that this was'nt suitable listening for us. Mackenzie can sit proudly in any collection. In mine he sits next to Mendellsohn...that just seems to make sense !

This is a beautiful production in every way. Mackenzies' Violin Concerto and Pibroch Suite can definitely give the old war-horses a run for their money.

The famed violinist Pablo de Sarasate greatly prefered Macks' concerto to those of Brahms or Dvorak, and that was a legitimate opinion. This concerto is of that calibur.

The Pibroch Suite was written specifically for Sarasate. It's definitely a Scottish work and call me crazy, but I prefer it to Bruchs' Scottish Fantasy, and I love the Scottish Fantasy. This is a supremely beautiful suite, and this is by far its' best recorded performance.

Malcolm Stewart, long time concert master of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, plays divinely. He has a huge tone and beautiful phrasing. This guy can really carry a tune. When you consider all of the mediocre violinists fed to 'we the public', it's a crime that Stewart hasn't been widely recorded. He's a great player and I'd like to hear him in those war-horses.

The Royal Scottish National Orchestra under Handley(concerto) and Davies(suite)play wonderfully. The recording also has demonstration quality sound. An allround beatiful production.

Especially liked the Pibroch Suite. I had to search for this after hearing it on XM radio. Worth the effort.
