The Week in Reviews, Op. 197: Jessica Lee and Peter Stumpf; Augustin Hadelich
September 11, 2017, 1:31 PM · In an effort to promote the coverage of live violin performance, Violinist.com each week presents links to reviews of notable concerts and recitals around the world.
Violinist Jessica Lee and cellist Peter Stumpf.
Jessica Lee performed the Brahms Double with cellist Peter Stumpf and the Spokane Symphony.
The Spokseman-Review: "So arresting was Stumpf’s musicianship that every time he set bow to string he compelled attention, regardless of what he was given to play. Likewise, Lee seemed able to make phrases materialize as out of nothing, or as though the musical idea had begun long before, but just out of hearing. While collaborating fully with Stumpf and her orchestral colleagues, she displayed a unique and compelling individual voice, allied with a technique that removed all barriers to interpretation."
Augustin Hadelich performed the Mendelssohn with the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra.
The Dallas Morning News: "Augustin Hadelich is one of the best violinists alive, and with these performances he began a year-long artistic partnership with the FWSO."
Theater Jones: "Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto in E-minor, Op. 64, is one long study in lush melodic outpourings and the young virtuoso violinist Augustin Hadelich used his rich tone and precise intonation to great advantage."
