About

45 RPM 180-gram vinyl

“... I have now listened to the whole album ten times in the past four days. And I have to say it is an addictive album with truly great music very well performed and recorded... [James Matheson's Violin Concerto is] a stunning work. I just can´t get enough of it. Equally great to see Esa-Pekka Salonen,a very good composer in his own right, supporting a fellow composer in this project.” - Chris Rille, Computer Audiophile

“Matheson’s concerto is a supercharged showpiece for virtuoso violinist and orchestra that connects with the listener on a visceral as well as intellectual level. It keeps the soloist extremely busy as he negotiates a maze of vivid, colorful orchestral effects that ultimately are the most interesting aspect of the piece. While neoromantic in overall flavor, Matheson is original enough to shun the feel-good bromides that constitute so much of today’s ‘new’ classical music.” - John von Rhein, Chicago Tribune

“Unlike many younger composers who have a basic idea and then try to orchestrate it, Matheson writes in full orchestral 3-D. Waves of tonal sounds moved across the stage, and sections had individual voices and even voices within the sections.” - Andrew Patner, Chicago Sun-Times

“Fans of Yarlung's fine albums are going to really love this one.” - Floor van der Holst, NativeDSD
