Editorial Reviews

Product Description

One of the great works of the 20th century, Bartok's Violin Concerto No.2 has virtually eclipsed his first effort in the genre, written thirty years earlier. However, this youthful work, inspired by his passionate, unrequited love for the young violinist Stefi Geyer and rediscovered long after the composer's death, deserves to be rediscovered. Isabelle Faust's deep connection to Bartok's music inspired her to explore a variety of original sources in an attempt to get closest to the composer's true intentions. Joined by the insightful Daniel Harding leading the Swedish Radio Symphony, Faust offers definitive readings of these masterworks.

Review

Here is young violinist Isabelle Faust, so brilliant previously with Bach's and Bartok's unaccompanied violin music, doing an exquisite job with the two Bartok violin concertos in the company of the Swedish Radio Symphony and Daniel Harding. Even in one of the more crowded recording fields, this one is a standout. 3.5 STARS --The Buffalo News
The lyrical, late-Romantic heart that beats at the center of all of Bartok's music is clearly expressed by violinist Isabelle Faust and Harding's flawless Swedish orchestra... in this performance the vast range of effects and musical ideas that Bartok presents are breathtaking. --The Rochester Post-Bulletin A stellar new release of the two violin concertos of Belà Bartók. Though there are already many fine recordings of these pieces on the market, Faust s account is compelling and not one to be missed. 5 STARS --The Arts Fuse
