Enescu, Martinů & Mokranjac⎜Deconstructing the Wall
‘There are times when Lorenzo Gatto and Miloš Popović creating the impression of spontaneously extemporising the music as they go along, so close is their identification with its elusive sound world.
Gatto combines a Gallic instinct for tonal colour with a rhythmic flair, dynamic flexibility and portamento sophistication that bring the Enescu Violin Sonata blazingly to life. No less impressive is the way he adopts a simpler, emotionally uncluttered style for the Martinu Stanzas, achieving a moving emotional repose in the central Andante moderato.’ – The Strad
‘Gatto’s technique is stellar, especially considering his relatively young age. He produces an abundance of tone colors, enabling him to transport listeners from moments of placidity to vehemence and everything in between. Add to this the exceptional fluid connection between Gatto and Popović and listeners are treated to a gripping performance of three masterpieces of the repertoire.’ – Allmusic
