Following their exhilarating recording of Beethoven's nine symphonies, David Zinman and the Zurich Tonhalle Orchestra join the hugely talented American violinist Pamela Frank for Mozart's five violin concertos. Frank is a stylish Mozartean who plays with a sweet tone and impeccable taste, lovingly bringing out each concerto's individual character without any hint of exaggeration. The orchestral playing is also a delight. Zinman elicits some sizzling playing from the strings in the finale to the First Concerto and shapes a soft cushion of sound in the exquisite Adagio of the Third Concerto. As a bonus, the musicians perform three movements from the charming "Haffner" Serenade -- the Andante, Minuet, and Rondeau -- offering Frank another opportunity to show off her lyrical gifts. With rich, clean sound and an appealingly low price tag, this is yet another winning release from Arte Nova's fast-growing catalogue.
