A very enjoyable group of violin concertos by one well-known and 3 obscure composers, all played well by Elizabeth Wallfisch. The Schubert is the best composed and sounds a lot like Paganini. The Viotti is high virtuosic and enjoyable with a Paganini sound as well. The Myslivecek is the oldest style at mid to early classical. The Spohr is right on the line between the classical and romantic periods. This music may sound a bit strange on the first hearing, but it is really enjoyable once one learns to appreciate it.

First I would like to point out this is an updated review. Initially I gave this 3 stars but now that seems to be too low.

I thought this mix of music would be a good CD to have. The Schubert Rondo and Viotti's usually accessible music seemed welcoming. The Spohr was a solid bonus and the Myslivecek would be whatever it was, I didn't care because the other 3 compositions were enough of a draw. Elisabeth Wallfisch is an accomplished violinist with excellent technique and usually a sweet toned agility to her playing. I played this today for the first time in awhile and found the program to be interesting and engaging. At times the violin tone comes out a little thin and distant and at times the music seems lose momentum. I still get some pleasure from this CD though and the varied program should find appeal among fans of the Classical and Romantic periods.

I happen to be a fan of Louis Spohr and I find his music always rich, full of good ideas, absorbing harmonies and interesting chord progressions. His work is probably the most interesting to me on the recording. The Viotti concerto also has pull, surprising in the depth of feeling the music contains. One shouldn't shy away from music just because it isn't by the most well known composers. Often the lesser known ones are very comparable to the big names. Viotti and Spohr are in this catagory and I've found their music to be extremely worthwhile to pursue. The Schubert piece suffers a little on this disc. I've only heard this performance of it, and here it fails to gain momemtum as it plays out. A concert Rondo should do that so this part of the CD could have been better.

The Viotti is a somewhat dark work with contrasting dynamics. It contrasts well with Myslivecek's more relaxed and melodic opening concerto.
