Review of Byba Scraide – Britten: Violin Concerto | Concerti.de

Byba Screed presents Britten's Violin Concerto in an intense, youthful way, but overall this recording is not great.

“Without a doubt my finest piece,” Benjamin Britten said of his Violin Concerto, which he described as “very serious” as a whole. Byba Skride exudes this serious personality, but she (also) has other priorities. It starts out nice and loud. Conductor Maren Alsop and the ORF Radio Symphony Orchestra provide her with many opportunities to do this, with the Austrians providing almost entirely chamber music accompaniment. In the second movement, the soloist focuses on rhythmic accents – Britten is somewhat youthful in appearance, intense but never harsh. The Double Concerto for Violin and Viola, which premiered in 1997, is an early work. Ivan Vukcevic joins us as soloist. As a duo, he harmonizes excellently with Baiba Screed. Here the orchestra offers wisdom, but nothing more. A recording that makes a lot of good arguments, but it's not great.
