First timer raves.

"Tianwa Wang's Sarasate CD is sensational. I am a professor of political science in his mid-60s. While I have loved classical music all my life and am undefeated in the old needle-drop contests that classical music lovers occasionally enjoy at their nerdy parties, I have never written an on line review of a recording and may never again. But THIS performance demands one. I have NEVER heard a violin performance of anything by anybody that has given me as much pleasure as this recording. Wang makes every sound a classical violin is capable of making. High harmonics whistle. Low notes sound like only a viola could make them. Every note is so shaped as to have its own unique personality. The double stops are impeccably balanced. The pianist accompanies to perfection. Buy this recording, then challenge your friends who say "I don't much like violins." not to change their minds and fall in love."
Spanish flair in oriental dress

"Miss Tianwa Yang, born in Peking in 1987, had succeeded in giving us a deep emotion listening to her Sarasate violin pieces, elegantly accompanied by the pianist Markus Hadulla. She has a strong personality; not one of these somehow famous pieces is played the same as others do or have done. Her technique is wonderful,her musical taste is very rare. The Habanera, the Playera, the Malaguena, the Capricho vasco with her wonderful left hand pizzicatos blending with the fine piano accompanyment, are a real joy to listen to.
Miss Yang evidently brings before a new standard for violin playing in the field of the most "western" music, the Spanish folklore, vesting it in her elegant oriental dress, which she takes from the centennial history of her Nation. Japanese prodiges of the last decades,frequently more western than the same European or USA,and Julliard or Curtis breed trained, find now a real example of what an almost perfect blend between Oriental culture and western classical music can bring to our ears and hearts.

"I heard a recording from a friend while I tried to listen to her copy of Zigeunerweisen and she instead took out her collection of Sarasate and played Habanera for me. It took my breath away, she played so poignantly with such precision and yet it was not a cold rendition it was so full of emotions I lost sight of my original goal. Afterward I decided I needed to buy my own copy. Later on I discovered that Miss Tianwa had been awarded the prize for best violinist in 2004 by THE Seiji Ozawa. Talk about a prodigy! While I still adore Nathan Milstein and Itzhak Perlman Miss Tinawa has become another personal favorite. I would defintely recommend this selection. I can say having been to Spain and being of descent that this is rendition is not a false mockery of the country but somehow makes me proud of my roots. It sounds gypsie-like and mysteriously enthralling all at once. Surprising because Miss Tianwa is Chinese and I have heard several European versions that sound off of such vitality."
