Hanslip’s Hubay

November 9, 2008

Violinst Chloë Hanslip has recorded works by Jenő Hubay for Naxos, with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra under conductor Andrew Mogrelia. The disc includes the Violin Concerto No 1 (Dramatique), Violin Concerto No 2, and the Suite for Violin and Orchestra. Recorded at The Lighthouse, Poole, the disc is Hanslip’s fourth for Naxos, following her 2006 recording of John Adams’s Violin Concerto with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra under Leonard Slatkin; concertos by Benjamin Godard; and, most recently, a disc of works for violin and piano by Antonio Bazzini.

- In The Studio, Gramophone, November 2008

The Bazzini disc has been praised in the same issue by Duncan Druce: “Does Bazzini need rehabilitating? A resounding yes after this set of delights…Hanslip certainly has the confidence and technique for this repertoire: more importantly, she’s able to engage with each piece, bringing out its expressive character. For the Romance in Op 44, for instance, she produces a soft, sensuous tone, quite different from her sound in the plaintive, ornate Nocturne from Op 41. Caspar Frantz accompanies very stylishly throughout, and Hanslip’s musical personality, graceful and with spontaneous verve, brings everything to life. It’s lovely violin playing!”
