Vladimir Ashkenazy collaborates with Esther Yoo in a new recording of Sibelius and Glazunov Violin Concertos with the Philharmonia Orchestra. Yoo first came to international attention in 2010 when, aged 16, she became the youngest prize-winner of the 10th International Sibelius Violin Competition. She made her London debut in 2014, performing Mozart's Violin Concerto No. 3 under the late Lorin Maazel at Royal Festival Hall. That same year, she was a soloist on the Philharmonia’s South America tour under Ashkenazy.

Alexander Glazunov: Grand Adagio
18th February 2016
“While it’s the strength and passion of her playing [in the Sibelius] that shines through rather than an especially individual take on the work, hers is a rounded, vibrant performance...[The Glazunov] should be heard more often; Yoo is a convincing advocate, lavishing thick, dark tone on its long melodies, though occasionally making the ends of phrases sound blunt.”
