‘In Mendelssohn's Concerto much thought has gone into fashioning the finale, taken at a leisurely tempo and with the orchestra audibly appropriating and distributing elements of the soloist's opening phrase. Few performances make such a gripping feature of the movement's dialogue element and Mullova again bows a bright, mercurial solo line.' Gramophone


‘Gardiner and Mullova establish an intimate rapport with each other and the listener cannot help being enveloped in such gorgeous proceedings that truly transcend the earthbound informality that normally suffuses such concertos.
The Beethoven is a miracle of unforced motion with a splendidly vivacious opening movement that complements Mullova's silky tone with the soulful ORR winds. I also enjoyed the Finale that is almost perfectly paced, another beautiful tribute to this oft recorded work.'

‘Her playing has warmth and fire but also offers the gentleness that the music demands.'

'...this recording is pretty revelatory in its own right...' MusicWeb International

 

An invaluable piece of violin repertoire, Beethoven's Violin Concerto is also, interestingly, the only concerto that he wrote for any string instrument. Comparatively, Mendelssohn was a violinist and so unsurprisingly his E minor concerto is now an essential part of violin repertory.
