Vieuxtemps: Violin Concertos Nos. 6 and 7 & Greeting To America
Vieuxtemps: Complete Violin Concertos
Orchestre Philharmonique Royal de Liège, Patrick Davin
This is really an event in the world of recordings. Producing all of Vieuxtemps’ seven violin concertos is quite an undertaking. Too much for a single person? It may be. For Augustin Dumay, master teacher-in-residence at the Chapelle Musicale Reine Elisabeth, however, this was the opportunity to pay tribute to the vitality of the Franco-Belgian school, the substance of which he learnt through his master Arthur Grumiaux. The task was taken up by seven young virtuosos he has taught, several of whom have already distinguished themselves in major international competitions. This is the result, impressive by its commitment and mastery, registered in the beautiful hall of the Liege Philharmonic, where the orchestra plays Vieuxtemps in its own backyard under the expert baton of Patrick Davin.
This attractive box of 3 CDs is also the opportunity to retrace Vieuxtemps’ extraordinary career, often reduced to mere virtuosity when in fact he pursued a search for expression and content all his life.
This is a hymn to the violin, to belcanto, panache and romanticism
“when almost all the performances, in uniformly excellent sound, challenge, if not supplant, those already available, then the enterprising Fuga Libera label can feel justifiably proud of its vision and execution...This handsomely presented fold-out set of discs with its detailed booklet...comes warmly recommended to every lover of bravura violin works with a sweet tooth.” Gramophone Magazine, October 2011
