Piano – José Gallardo. Violin – Vilde Frang.

Vilde Frang and José Gallardo pay homage to the great violinists of the past and their flamboyant, even poignant, encores. Virtuosity aside, great melodies are the kings here-Gluck’s Dance of the Blessed Spirits is a thing of great beauty in Kreisler’s arrangement, and Jascha Heifetz’s version of a movement from Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet is dark and mischievous. Vilde Frang and José Gallardo pay homage to the great violinists of the past and their flamboyant, even poignant, encores.

Recorded with acclaimed Argentinian pianist José Gallardo, the newly-released disc features a captivating program of short pieces for violin and piano from the Golden Age of String Playing – including parlor works by Fritz Kreisler, Leopold Auer and Joseph Szigeti. This album was conceived as something of a homage to my illustrious predecessors, the 31 year old virtuoso has said. Frang has the knack of breathing life into every note, whether by variations in phrasing, attack, tone or dynamic, BBC Music Magazine has gushed.

Her father appears in the most spectacular work of the bunch, the mazurka called Obertass. Much of the album is devoted to transcriptions; in this group the icy technician Heifetz and the evanescently melodic Kreisler loom large, in elegant contrast, but lesser-known names like Léon Roques and Joseph Szigeti appear along the way in a beautifully constructed program. Accompanist José Gallardo gives Frang room and stays out of her way. Brava! Track Listing.

Vilde Frang’s Homage is more than a captivating programme of short pieces for violin and piano, it is also a homage to the players of the Golden Age of the Violin, such as Fritz Kreisler, Leopold Auer and Joseph Szigeti. The recital includes music originally conceived not just for the violin, but also for piano, orchestra or voice, and proves once again, as BBC Music Magazine wrote, that Frang has the knack of breathing life into every note, whether by variations in phrasing, attack, tone or dynamic.

Vilde Frang plays the miniatures with a warm and rounded tone, making it a real pleasure to accompany her on her tour of the different styles and epochs on display here. She maintains a lightness of touch throughout. Together with the elegantly restrained José Gallardo, she demonstrates real wit and a strong sense of tonal balance. Several legends from violin history meet on this album - Kreisler, Wieniawski, Heifetz, and many more - as composers and arrangers who transposed the works for violin and piano.
