About This Performance

“A gorgeous bluesy tune on the violin meets an implacable rhythm, the effect being somewhere between Led Zeppelin's ‘Kashmir’ and Stravinsky's Rite of Spring, before it wanders off into nostalgic romantic reverie and then back to that killer tune and close-to-techno beat. This makes most music around seem positively timid. It is a work of astonishing fearlessness and fierce beauty.” (The Guardian on Adès’ Violin Concerto)
