Pablo SARASATE (1844-1908)
Music for Violin and Orchestra, Volume 4
Fantasies on Don Giovanni and Der Freischütz

Tianwa Yang, violin Orquesta Sinfónica de Navarra • Ernest Martínez Izquierdo

This volume concludes Tianwa Yang’s internationally acclaimed series of recordings of Pablo de Sarasate’s works for violin and orchestra. This stunning programme includes the popular Introduction et Tarantelle and two delightful jotas. Sarasate’s scintillating flying staccato technique is heard in the Fantaisie on Weber’s ‘Der Freischütz’, while Le Rêve is a remarkable work in every way. “Yang is splendidly equipped as a Sarasate violinist, with her clear tone, pure intonation, impressive dexterity and light touch … startlingly beautiful.”
Gramophone on Volume 3, 8.572275

“I suppose Yang's playing can only be described as perfect, and perfect is a word I normally hate to use, because I normally think of perfection to be a myth.” – Elaine Fine, American Record Guide
