Sibelius: Violin Concerto; Halvorsen: Air Norvégien; Sinding: Légende; Svendsen: Romance and more – Kang, Slovak (Bratislava) RSO, Leaper

‘Dong-Suk Kang chooses some popular Scandinavian repertoire pieces, such as the charming Svendsen Romance in G, as makeweights. His version of the concerto is very fine… There is splendid virtuosity and authoritative playing in the outer movements. The orchestral playing is very acceptable too. In the bargain basement, this enjoys a strong competitive advantage, but even if it were full price it would feature quite high in the current list. Dong-Suk Kang plays Sinding’s Légende with great conviction and an effortless, songful virtuosity. It is by no means as appealing as the Halvorsen and Svendsen pieces but makes a good makeweight for an excellent collection in the lowest price range. Donk-Suk Kang plays the attractive Danses norvégiennes with great panache, character and effortless virtuosity, and delivers an equally impeccable performance of the earlier Air norvégien. Svendsen’s once popular Romance in C is played without sentimentality but with full hearted lyricism.’
