Usually ships within 1-3 days
Lauded as \the most charismatic violinist the UK has produced in recent years", Chlo?½ Hanslip has delighted music lovers with her Naxos recordings of virtuosic 19th century music by Bazzini and Godard. Hubay's first two Violin Concertos not only make full use of the violin's singing qualities, especially in the gorgeous slow movements, but require considerable virtuosity in performance. With their Hungarian folk-dance elements the Sc?¿nes de la Cs?írda are among Hubay's most famous works.
"[Hanslip] makes a triumphant success of this concerto, not least because her playing is as forceful and muscular as it is assured, and one hears in every entry how well thought-through are her approach and her grasp of the work's subtle musical nuance." The Strad on 8570554"
