Josef Suk was both composer and violinist, and his Fantasy Op. 24 fits the instrument better, falling directly in line with the folk-flavored romanticism exploited by Goldmakr, Joahcim, and Dvorak in their concertos. I've never been able to decide if Suk would be considered a prominent composer if his countryman Dvorak had never lived. the Fantasy is by turns lyrical, robust, and sparkling, but the orchestral accompaniment doesn't reveal themes or development of any great moment. There's enough sweep to keep your attention form wandering; the work is ambitious and fairly long (24 min.), but Suk winds up giving us a string of episodes more than an organically unfolding concerto. I doubt, despite the product description, that it will gain more than a toehold in the concert hall, but it's worth a listen.Read more ›
Fischer's playing is typically perfect in technique, huge dark tone, mature compositions, with a smart young attitude to the music.
