Martinů⎜Violin Concerto No. 2

‘Curiously, given the music’s attractiveness, it has not been recorded all that often. Isabelle Faust turned in a good performance recently for Harmonia Mundi, but this one, with Lorenzo Gatto an impressively impassioned soloist, has more energy and sheer gusto, especially in the turbulent opening movement.’ – ClassicsToday

‘CD competition in Martinů’s Second Violin Concerto includes an especially fine version by Isabelle Faust with the Prague Philharmonia under Jiří Bělohlávek but Lorenzo Gatto (who is still only in his twenties) has no need to fear the heat of rivalry. I was especially impressed by Gatto’s brilliant and tender-hearted playing.’ – Gramophone
