In an effort to promote the coverage of live violin performance, Violinist.com each week presents links to reviews of notable concerts and recitals around the world.

Augustin Hadelich

Augustin Hadelich performed the Barber with the New York String Orchestra.

  • The New York Times: "As for rich string sound, Mr. Hadelich produces it in abundance. Sheer depth and glowing beauty distinguished the wistful slow movement. Backed by the alert orchestra, he dispatched the dazzling perpetual-motion finale with effortless technique and crackling energy."

He played Paganini Caprice No. 24 as an encore; here he is playing the same piece in 2010 in Saarbr├╝cken, Germany, enjoy:

Here is an excerpt from that, Sonata No. 10 in G Major, Op. 96: IV. Poco allegretto:

We thank you for following the "Week in Reviews" in 2014 and wish all violinists and violin fans a very happy new year, filled with concerts and recitals!
