A comprehensive collection of Elgar’s Violin Music on 3 CDs, featuring Marat Bisengaliev as soloist.

For more than two decades before he achieved fame and financial security as England’s foremost composer, the young Edward Elgar earned a living as a violinist and violin teacher. Beside such evergreens as Sospiri, Chansons de Matin and de Nuit, Salut d’amour and his substantial Violin Sonata and Concerto, this Naxos anthology includes a treasury of lesser-known works, both charming salon pieces and astonishingly demanding études.

MusicWeb International

June 2011

“from the beginning I was captivated. The orchestra plays the opening phrase precisely, with nicely shaded brass; I would actually have liked a bit more from them. The pacing, so vital to Elgar, was subtly varied, with a lovely sense of repose...Bisengaliev and his Kazakh forces seem to be able to tune straight into the emotion behind this music, which they handle with great assurance and restraint.”
