REVIEWS

The biggest work is the Violin Concerto in G minor of 1910. It went through a rather complex history going back as far as 1893, which you can read about in Qianyi Fan’s excellent and detailed booklet notes. Probably intended for Enescu, later the dedicatee of the ‘Ballade’ solo sonata, it lacks orchestration and so this has been provided by Sabin Pautza. There’s a prayerful component to the opening followed immediately by a rather Elgarian passage – a product of their shared late-romantic inheritance, one supposes, though Ysaÿe did famously give the German première of the Elgar Concerto in January 1912, shortly after the final version of his own G minor concerto was written. Aptly orchestrated, one surmises, the concerto has attractive, elastic lyric paragraphs, quietly housing some Debussian-Delian passages. There’s a good cadenza and the work ends boldly with a confident peroration, resonantly delivered by the Liepāja Symphony Orchestra under Paul Mann.
