As the previous instalments in this series nothing disappoints. If you like Sarasate these are the discs to have, by reason of Tianwa Yang. She is probably one of the best young violinists I encountered recently. With the start of this series I was amazed about such musicality and an absolute commitment to the technical aspects of the violin. I still gasp at her virtuosity and not for a few seconds. All the pieces on this CD are easy to approach, there is no hurdle to like this music instantly. Melodious, romantic and fiery in expression, the fleet fingers of Wang will play it all and more. The recording is kind to the Violin, and also to the orchestra. But the sound is a bit rough at places. More a robust orchestra as one that is shining through the details of the works. But as an accompaniment to Wang they do just fine.

Unfortunately Volume I of Graupner is missing in that list. It is OOP. The prices paid on Amazon are ridiculous.
