Semi-precious Gems Dec 22 2012
By RJAdams - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Three violin concertos all written fluently for the violin, largely in a (Scandinavian/Central European) lyrical rather than dramatic vein. The Langgaard though essentially a one movement concerto under ten minutes is the most individual, definitely worth hearing, and the best reason to purchase this disc. The Gade and Lange-Mueller have striking moments as well but after three hearings are less memorable than other concertos of the type, such as the Mendelssohn or Bruch 1 and 2.

That said, how often do we need to listen to those venerable warhorses? The violinist Astrand has a sweet sound and great technique but lacks that last bit of oomph or temperament that distinguishes the greatest soloists. A Zino Francescatti or Jascha Heifetz (or perhaps the exciting Alina Ibragimova), accompanied by a top notch orchestra, might be able to make something more of these semi-precious gems.
