Miklos Rozsa wrote his Violin Concerto for Jascha Heifetz. Heifetz’s performance is incomparable, but it’s also well over half a century old and is beginning to sound its age. This brand-new version in sumptuous modern sound has the gifted young British soloist Jennifer Pike with the BBC Philharmonic and Rumon Gamba. Pike plays with an ideal blend of lyricism and technical assurance, her sense of singing lines brings out the rhapsodic eloquence of Rozsa’s writing in this work most winningly and she’s very well partnered by the BBC orchestra and Gamba. Any collector looking for a thoroughly persuasive modern version of this lovely concerto need to look no further. Pike’s way with this music is exceptionally satisfying.
