CD Reviews

Schoenberg was very wrong
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Composers have a tendency it seems to write one violin concerto (which becomes one of their best works). Stravinsky and Schoenberg are no exceptions to this. Schoenberg's concerto, he once bragged, would require a six fingered violinist. Michael Erxleben proves him to be very wrong. The performance he gives on these pieces is absolutely top notch - full of expressivity and, of course, virtuosity (duh). This is an album you must add to your collection - wonderful performances of two monumental 20th century works."
