Critically acclaimed violinist Tianwa Yang is a winner of the prestigious ECHO Klassik Instrumentalist of the Year (Violin) 2015 Award for her Naxos recording of Ysa˙e’s 6 Sonatas for Solo Violin, op.27 (8572995), the Best Up-and-Coming Artist 2014 Award and the annual prize of the German Record Critics’ Award Association 2014 for her Naxos recordings of Mendelssohn’s Violin Concertos (8572662) and her multiple volumes of Sarasate’s complete works for violin. She has performed worldwide with major orchestras in Germany and US, the Singapore and New Zealand Symphonies, and the London, Helsinki and Hong Kong Philharmonics.
Tianwa Yang, called ‘an unquestioned master of the violin’ (American Record Guide), is an internationally renowned performer and recording artist – see her Best of Tianwa Yang album on 8578317. Her latest Naxos recordings include Brahms’s Violin Concerto and Double Concerto (8573772), and Wolfgang Rihm’s Music for Violin and Orchestra (8573667 / 8573812).
Conductor Jun Märkl is a distinguished Naxos recording artist, and highly acclaimed as interpreter of the core German repertoire. He also specialises in 20th-century French music for Naxos and has earned international plaudits for his multi-volume Debussy series (8509002) as well as for his Ravel and Messiaen discs. His Saint-Saėns recordings are admired – AllMusic.com wrote for Ascanio (8574033): ‘Jun Märkl and the Basque National Orchestra are ideal interpreters of Saint-Saėns.’
Also available is the 6-disc boxed set of Prokofiev’s Complete Symphonies (8506038). Musical Opinion awarded it 5 stars: ‘This is an inexpensive and uniformly good [set] of Prokofiev’s major orchestral music, which is certainly recommendable for the newcomer to this great composer’s concert works… [Marin Alsop’s] interpretations are on a consistently high level of accomplishment.’
