The two violin concertos together on this recording have many affinities than differences. Due to two creators in conflict with their native Russian land - one choosing the way back, the other settling permanently in exile - they belong to the aesthetics of the "return to order" soon observed 1920 and marked by the recovery of models from the past. If Prokofiev preserves the traditional foundations of the concerto, but he marries the search for a new lyricism. About Stravinsky, he elaborates, to him, while offering proven voluntarily distanced neutral and expressive models.
"... I found plenty to enjoy and admire yet again in Kopatchinskaja’s playing ... her musicianship remains distinctively individual"
