“The young soloist, Alena Baeva, was an expressive, sparkling counterpoint to the dignified, calm Michail Jurowski. However, they developed a very fine interplay, with close and responsive cooperation. I have never heard this violin concerto played with such fine nuances and such low-voiced parts in the second movement, Larghetto. Baeva’s sounds was sheer, almost fragile, but it came through the orchestra.”
