Acclaimed as 'an uncommonly brilliant young violinist' Tianwa Yang continues her highly praised survey of Pablo de Sarasate's music for violin and orchestra. The Magic Flute Fantasy is a masterpiece of the genre a la Paganini, while the Gounod Fantasy (his second) is a miracle of lightness. The highly popular Navarra, the charming Muiniera with its bagpipe effects, the bewitching Venetian Barcarolle and the Introduction et Caprice-Jota with its barcarolle-like beginning and dancing finale coming thrillingly to life on this album.
"Yang has already demonstrated not only stunning, effortless virtuosity, but an uncanny affinity for Spanish music in a recording of Sarasate's Spanish Dances (Naxos 8.557767). Here, her ability to capture the bel canto style'its meltingly beautiful sound, vocal fireworks, rhythmic flexibility, graciousness, and charm'is equally astonishing." Strings Magazine
