Lisa Batiashvili: Visions of Prokofiev - Pizzicato

"Lisa Bathiasvili and the Chamber Orchestra of Europe conducted by Yannick Nézet-Séguin offer an enchanting performance of Prokofiev’s violin concertos. Bathiasvili’s sensitive yet also virtuoso playing has an exciting naturalness which presents both of these wonderful violin concertos not only impeccably, but underlines all their qualities." (9.3.18, Pizzicato)

Best recordings: Giuilano Carmignola

"Virtuoso “violinism” and energising direction notwithstanding, neither Giuliano Carmignola nor Claudio Abbado seems inspired by the B flat Concerto, K207. Nor does slick dispatch do much for the first movement of the D major, K211; but this is not the shape of things to come. Carmignola steps away from neutrality in the succeeding Andante. The music breathes a life of its own as he ardently inflects its phrases to shape the tension and relaxation of his line which – as elsewhere – he also embellishes." This short text is on the Website of Gramophone sounds very good. It´s the best if you enjoy the recording of this magnificant violinconcert.
