Filled with Mendelssohn’s signature freshness and lightness of touch, the Violin Concerto in D minor and the Sonata, Op 4 are youthful products but written with an assurance which is startling in its maturity. The substantial earlier concerto gives a foretaste of the originality and soaring inspiration which has made the Violin Concerto, Op 64 one of the most enduring works of its age. Acclaimed as “an unquestioned master of the violin” (American Record Guide), Tianwa Yang has quickly established herself as a leading international performer and recording artist, with highly acclaimed discs of works by Sarasate, Piazzolla and Wolfgang Rihm.

Norbert Hornig - Fono Forum magazine - July 2013

 


 "...Tianwa Yang ... proves an outstanding advocate, soaring aloft on the surging tide of Mendelssohn’s inspiration with captivating spontaneity and disarming sincerity. Magic moments abound, but the beguiling way Yang winds down into the recapitulation of the opening movement’s [Concerto] heart-warming second theme is unforgettable..."

"...Pianist Romain Descharmes accompanies very sympathetically, and both in the concertos and the sonata the engineering is very clean and well-balanced. In sum, the couplings make this disc worth acquiring even if you’d never think of buying another version of the E minor concerto. As for Yang, she remains an artist to watch."

 "... Yang’s recording is a good one, and it’s thoroughly enjoyable too..."

                        CD of the Week
"Discover Mendelssohn’s lesser-known violin music in the context of his brilliant Violin Concerto in E minor. Tianwa Yang’s bright violin solos trip delicately over the top of the orchestral texture, and she handles the speedy passages with a impressive lightness of touch. It would be easy to over-egg Mendelssohn’s soupy solos in the middle Andante movements, but Yang’s versions sound beautifully fragile rather than indulgent.A diverse mix of great music, showcasing the best features of Romantic violin repertoire, featuring hummable tunes, orchestral passion, and delicate chamber music."
 
Classic FM - 28 January 2013

"In Tianwa Yang we find an artist of exceptional technique and musicianship. Above all, her tone, particularly at the extremes, on the E and G strings, is heart-meltingly beautiful ... impeccable technique throughout.  *****
