Jaime Laredo Makes Sense out of Harbison
Stephen Fine | Gainesville, Florida USA | 08/17/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Even if Laredo's recording of this concerto were not the only one in existance, I would still buy it. His interpretation is artful and his musicality is unrivalled. When I began work on this concerto as a violist, I couldn't make very much sense of it musically. Jaime Laredo helped me to find my own interpretation, different than his, but sensible, in a concerto very hard to make sense out of. The concerto is not easy listening, but rather an academic recording. It's hard to let the stirring melodies (or anti-melodies) sit in the back of your mind. The concerto shows a fairly wide variety of the viola's talents, and who better to show them than the mature voice of Mr. Laredo."
