Sarasate: Music for Violin and Orchestra Volume 3

“Despite doing without any of his most popular pieces, this third instalment of Sarasate's music for violin and orchestra makes a most attractive programme...Yang is splendidly equipped as a Sarasate violinst, with her clear tone, pure intonation, impressive dexterity and light touch...[Her] playing is consistently lovely, capturing an essential part of the music's spirit”  --Gramophone Magazine, October 2011

Tianwa Yang (violin)
Orquesta Sinfónica de Navarra, Ernest Martínez Izquierdo

Acclaimed as ‘an uncommonly brilliant young violinist’ Tianwa Yang continues her highly praised survey of Pablo de Sarasate’s music for violin and orchestra.

The Magic Flute Fantasy is a masterpiece of the genre à la Paganini, while the Gounod Fantasy (his second) is a miracle of lightness. The highly popular Navarra, the charming Muiñiera with its bagpipe effects, the bewitching Venetian Barcarolle and the Introduction et Caprice-Jota with its barcarolle-like beginning and dancing finale coming thrillingly to life on this album.
