Product Description


technical comment

  • James Ehnes is recognised the world over as one of the great violinists of our time – famed for his brilliant technique and musical intelligence as both soloist and chamber musician. These recordings of the complete Mozart Violin Concertos made over ten years ago for CBC and long out of the catalogue sound as fresh as the day they were made. James directs a hand-picked orchestra of colleagues who are as meticulous and fine musicians as he is. The cadenzas in all the concertos are by Ehnes who studied the composer’s own cadenzas of the contemporaneous piano concertos–especially Nos 8 & 9 K246 and 271.

    "Vital, elegant, beautiful playing of all five concertos…rapt eloquence" Gramophone
