About

Almost forty years separate Verklärte Nacht (‘Transfigured Night’) from the Violin Concerto – the former still influenced by the idiom of Brahms and Wagner, the latter deriving from the richness of that later period when Schoenberg managed to combine a multiplicity of approaches within his twelve-note system. Between post-Romantic twilight and ‘classical’ rigour, Isabelle Faust and her most faithful partners offer us an extraordinarily lively interpretation of some of the most remarkable pages in twentieth-century musical literature.

Reviews

...intimate, emotional power, beauty and delicacy of sound as well, add Faust’s wonderful recording of the Schoenberg Violin Concerto...and this is an outstanding album.  Andrew McGregor
Record Review (BBC Radio 3) 29 February 2020
As in her exceptional 2012 account of the Berg concerto with Claudio Abbado, Faust brings a fabulous range of colour and expressive nuance to this music, and Daniel Harding matches her understanding in the way he teases out the wiry orchestral textures around her violin lines.  Andrew Clements

Faust brings a fabulous range of colour and expressive nuance to this music, and Daniel Harding matches her understanding in the way he teases out the wiry orchestral textures around her violin lines.  Andrew Clements
The Guardian 27 February 2020
The pairing underlines the composer’s extraordinary journey out of tonality, and Faust delivers the most beautifully played account – gritty, intense – with Harding.  Hugh Canning (Album of the Week)
