London Philharmonic Orchestra / Klaus Tennstedt: Tchaikovsky: Violin Concerto & Lalo: Symphonie espagnole
Klasyczna Muzyka Symfoniczna / Violin Concertos

These live concert recordings feature Grammy-Award winning violinist Augustin Hadelich. Establishing himself as one of the great violinists of his generation, he is consistently cited for his phenomonal technique and gorgeous tone.
The pairing of these pieces has been carefully considered; the influence of Lalo’s fresh and unassumingly simple approach can be heard in Tchaikovsky’s Concerto, and Hadelich brings out the range of emotions across both pieces.
Following Omer Meir Wellber’s acclaimed debut at Glyndebourne Festival Opera in May 2014 with Eugene Onegin, the London Philharmonic Orchestra invited him to make his Royal Festival Hall debut with them in April 2015, the concert from which this Lalo recording comes.
This release will add to Vasily Petrenko’s catalogue of Tchaikovsky recordings; his Manfred Symphony won the Gramophone Recording of the Year in 2009 and he also recorded the First, Second and Fifth Symphonies with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra.
These recordings are taken from live concert performances at Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall on 17 April 2015 (Lalo) and 24 February 2016 (Tchaikovsky).

Hadelich’s rich tone pays dividends in an arresting, heartfelt Tchaikovsky. The rather slighter Lalo is nevertheless given a seductive and graceful performance.
Where Hadelich’s Tchaikovsky is a touch polite, his Lalo (recorded a year earlier) bursts with character. There is plenty of beef here, both in the violin tone and in the LPO’s partnering, Omer Meir Wellber drawing out Spanish fire and stamping heels from this colourful – and strangely neglected – score. Hadelich exudes bravado in the terrific Rondo finale
Two virtuoso concertos given immaculate live performances.
It is not easy to uncover new dimensions in such a frequently played, almost hackneyed work as Tchaikovsky's violin concerto. Augustin Hadelich succeeds in doing just that, thanks to his strong violinistic profile, characterised in large part by a focussed and radiant tone, highly refined musicianship and an impressive instrumental precision that he can summon up live.
