Album Review: Bohemian Tales
"He is someone who wins audiences’ hearts wherever he performs”, says conductor Alan Gilbert about the German-American violinist Augustin Hadelich.… And indeed, everything Hadelich has gathered together on the musical topic of “Bohemia” really does win our hearts, with a thrillingly energetic interpretation of Dvorák's only violin concerto (Op. 53), lyrically wistful in the first movement and vigorously light in the finale, along with a melancholy and compassionate Larghetto (Op. 75/4), also by Dvorák. Joining company with these are a sensitively interpreted violin sonata by Leos Janácek and four profound pieces, or more specifically, Perspectives, by Josef Suk. The album is rounded off by two further works of Dvorák, “When my old mother” and the evergreen familiar to every concertgoer, “Humoresque”. What a delight!

Mendelssohn Concerto with Frankfurter Opern- und Museumsorchester

'The audience could rejoyce in a performance of the American violinist Augustin Hadelich who played with smooth, bright and clear expression, effortless technique and exceptional unity with the orchestra.'

Debut with Frankfurt Radio Orchestra - Dvorák Violin Concerto

'Born in Italy to German parents, soloist Augustin Hadelich tackled Antonín Dvorák's Violin Concerto in A minor op.53 with a bright and lean sound, carried by a vibrato that was fast and focused rather than wobbly, and that barely blurred the clarity of the sound. Now an American citizen, violinist Hadelich communicated with the woodwinds with tenderness and subtle lyricism in the slow movement, and brought an elegant buoyancy to the frequently roughly construed finale.'
