Lauded as “the most charismatic violinist the UK has produced in recent years”, Chloë Hanslip has delighted music lovers with her Naxos recordings of virtuosic 19th century music by Bazzini and Godard.
Hubay’s first two Violin Concertos not only make full use of the violin’s singing qualities, especially in the gorgeous slow movements, but require considerable virtuosity in performance.
With their Hungarian folk-dance elements the Scènes de la Csárda are among Hubay’s most famous works.
Jeno Hubay: Violin Concerto No. 1 in A minor, Op. 21, "Concerto dramatique"
I. Allegro appassionato
II. Adagio ma non tanto
III. Allegro con brio
Jeno Hubay: Scenes de la Csarda No. 3, Op. 18, "Maros vize" (version for violin and orchestra)
Scenes de la Csarda No. 3, Op. 18, "Maros vize" (version for violin and orchestra)
Jeno Hubay: Scenes de la Csarda No. 4, Op. 32, "Hejre Kati" (Hey, Katie) (version for violin and orchestra)
Scenes de la Csarda No. 4, Op. 32, "Hejre Kati" (version for violin and orchestra)
Jeno Hubay: Violin Concerto No. 2 in E major, Op. 90

III. Allegro non troppo
“…Hanslip's radiant artistry and phrasal sensitivity is highly seductive. …witness her first entry in the Second Concerto which is shaped with exquisite finesse. Devoted support from Andrew Mogrelia and the Bournemouth SO and well-balanced engineering rounds out a splendid release.”
“Chloë Hanslip's generous sweetness of tone is well displayed here, with good support from the orchestra. She is also more than a match for all the virtuoso fireworks that Hubay throws at his soloist in the vigorous fiddling of the finales and in two of the once very popular Scènes de la Csárda.”
