The Violin Concerto here appears packed with uproarious character and dreamy but not overheated fantasy. Matsuyama spares nothing in her commitment and her projection of character. This collection is from a repertoire point of view a natural coupling at bargain price. New-comers will do themselves no harm at all by snapping it up - MusicWeb

...stunning performance of Nielsen's still too little known Violin Concerto.....soloist attacks that last movement with an uplifting rhythmic lilt and a certain rustic vigour ... (she) adapts perfect intonation and fearlessly conquers the first movement's virtuoso passages. Given a perfectly idiomatic accompaniment... the result is as fine a version as any. - David Hurwitz in Classics Today
