Sarasate: Transcriptions

The finale to this critically-acclaimed four-disc series contains some of Sarasate's greatest - and also some of his rarest - transcriptions and arrangements, some of which have been in the repertoire of violinists since they were published. They include a delectable Chopin sequence, arrangements inspired by the music of French Baroque violinists, an early and beautifully constructed Souvenirs de Faust based on Gounod, and Sarasate's own favourite concert piece, Raff's La fée d'amour. "Yang throws off merciless chains of double stops and finger crippling arabesques with scintillating aplomb ... simply inimitable ... Bravo!" (BBC Music Magazine on Volume 3, 8.570893)

Many of the transcriptions and arrangements in this final volume are justly famous but some, such as the two Chopin waltzes, are rarer. Each piece is perfectly tailored to Sarasate's very personal performance aesthetic and evokes his eminence as an interpreter of genius. Most have been multiply recorded but Tianwa Yang and piano accompanist Markus Hadulla, have been much lauded in this whole series. Volume 3, the last release, was named the American Record Guide's Critic's Choice.

Tianwa Yang has quickly established herself as a leading international performer and recording artist. She has recorded critically acclaimed interpretations of the complete music for violin and orchestra, and for violin and piano by Sarasate.
