‘...lively and zest filled performances.' The Telegraph  

'Brahms's Hungarian Dances are as colourful, fast-paced and brilliant as one could wish for, and under Swensen's powerful command the orchestra gives a fantastically spirited performance.' The Strad

Swensen is a player of real distinction, and this new performance lets us hear Brahms's orchestral writing with a rare clarity too.
Highly enjoyable.'
IRR  

It's just about perfect.' 10/10 ClassicsToday.com 

The beguiling lyrical melodies of the Violin Concerto belie its formidable technical demands; Swensen proves the master of Brahms' frequent use of multiple stopping, broken chords, rapid scale passages and shifting rhythms. Playing a 1715 Stradivarius Swensen showcases honeyed tone colours with effortless bravura executing Joachim's dazzling Cadenza with aplomb. 

Swensen's authoritative command produces well-characterised and energetic performances in the selection of Hungarian Dances orchestrated by Dvorak, Schmeling and Brahms himself, among others. Guided by Swensen the SCO give dynamic, technically assured and intimate readings overflowing with the subtle touches and flourishes.  


Dedicated to Donald and Louise MacDonald
