All Music Guide - Mike D. Brownell
Continuing on her highly successful and enjoyable survey of Pablo Sarasate's music for violin and orchestra, Chinese-born violinist Tianwa Yang returns for a third installment of the Spanish violinist-composer's music with Naxos. Vol. 3 incorporates more of Sarasate's lesser-known compositions -- with the exception of the "Op. 33 Navarra" -- into a program that is no less enthralling than previous volumes. Yang has an uncanny ability to turn uncommon compositions into dazzling spectacles that make listeners feel as if they've known the work all their lives.

All Music Guide - Mike D. Brownell
Continuing on her highly successful and enjoyable survey of Pablo Sarasate's music for violin and orchestra, Chinese-born violinist Tianwa Yang returns for a third installment of the Spanish violinist-composer's music with Naxos. Vol. 3 incorporates more of Sarasate's lesser-known compositions -- with the exception of the "Op. 33 Navarra" -- into a program that is no less enthralling than previous volumes. Yang has an uncanny ability to turn uncommon compositions into dazzling spectacles that make listeners feel as if they've known the work all their lives. Her performance of "Navarra" is a stunning display as Yang executes not one, but both solo violin parts on her own. Her pacing, tone, and dynamics make for a truly seductive musical experience, and she easily captures the Spanish flair and bravura that characterize Sarasate. Her technique is all but flawless, bringing spotless intonation, wonderfully controlled right arm articulation, and an almost inhuman ability to dash around the fingerboard and effortlessly nail even the biggest shifts. Yang is joined by the Orquesta Sinfónica de Navarra under Ernest Martínez Izquierdo who matches Yang's musical panache measure for measure with a big, robust tutti sound that never once obscures the soloist. Naxos' sound is clean and vibrant, allowing listeners to enjoy the natural, sophisticated beauty of Yang's tone.

    Sarasate Again!

    This is a charming, exhilarating disc with two fascinating discoveries among the six selections included: the evocative, nocturnal hued Barcarolle venitienne and Muineiras with its drone effects and additional violin part (played by the soloist). Tianwa Yang plays with great feeling and style not to mention an assured, elegant technique. She is matched measure for measure with tight, robust support provided by conductor, Ernest Martinez Izquierdo and his crackerjack ensemble, Orquesta Sinfonica de Navarra. The sense of unbridled, joyous music making is palpable throughout. Sonics are full bodied with an ideal balance between soloist and orchestra. Rack up another winner in what is proving to be an important series devoted to these marvelous show pieces.
