Die erste CD dieses Doppelalbums beginnt mit dem 3. Violinkonzert von Andreas Romberg. Das virtuose Werk wird deutlich aufgewertet durch die anspruchsvolle Interpretation des heute 22-jährigen russischen Geigers Yuri Revich. Er spielt das Konzert sehr souverän, bezaubernd anmutig und frisch, mit einer leichten und federnden Tongebung, niemals das Material überreizend und somit, ohne sich selber durch übermäßige Brillanz in den Vordergrund zu spielen. Das zeugt von Reife und musikalischem Verantwortungsbewusstsein. Besonders gelungen ist der warmherzige langsame Satz, den Revich mit höchster Sensibilität spielt, ohne die Musik zu süß werden zu lassen. Hier wie in den übrigen Werken mit Orchester nimmt der 25-jährige Tessiner Luca Bizzozero wohl ein Maximum aus den Hofer Symphonikern heraus, aber, streng genommen, klingt das bayerische Orchester manchmal doch etwas hölzern und bleibt den Werken manches an blühender Klangpracht schuldig.

Auf einer zweiten CD spielt Yuri Revich die kurze, zweisätzige Violinsonate Nr. 3 von Andreas Romberg. Und hier zeigt der junge Geiger wirklich, was er kann. Er spielt einfach hinreißend und mit spürbarer Liebe zu der reizvollen Komposition, die ihm die Gelegenheit gibt, virtuos zu glänzen und auch musikalisch zu begeistern. Sein Ton ist prachtvoll, von größter Farbvielfalt, technisch in höchstem Maße beeindruckend. Das ist musikalische Leidenschaft auf höchstem Niveau, in völlig freier und gelöster Form.

This is certainly an enriching manner to discover music from the cousins Andreas and Bernhard Romberg. While the orchestra's playing could be a bit more dynamic, the soloists are impressive, Yuri Revich certainly more that Lionel Cottet, since this young Russian virtuoso shows in the Concerto as well as in the Sonata a highly developed and responsible musicality. He is definitely a music"

n perfekter Partnerschaft und musikalischer Gleichberechtigung spielen der 22-jährige russische Geiger Yury Revich und die bulgarische Pianistin Donka Angatscheva Mozarts Sonate für Klavier und Violine KV 301 und das für Violine und Klavier arrangierte Rondo aus der Haffner-Serenade. Der Hörer fühlt es sofort: diese beiden Musiker haben ein wunderbares Gleichgewicht im Vortrag erreicht. Nichts hat in dieser Musik zu viel oder zu wenig Gewicht, alle Proportionen sind perfekt, im Technischen wie im Ausdruck.

Die drei kurzen Mozart-Sätze führen zu der Zauberflöten-Fantasie von Pablo de Sarasate, in welcher der Farbenkünstler Revich ohne je zu übertreiben zu einem wunderbaren Sänger auf seinem Instrument wird. Mit großer Ausdruckskraft differenziert Revich zwischen Klangmystik, Innigkeit, praller Energie und mitreißendem Spaß.
In den Zigeunerweisen zeigt sich die Klangphantasie des jungen russischen Geigers auf ihrem Zenith. Wie Revich phrasiert, wie unbeschreiblich er sowohl im Farblichen wie auch im Dynamischen differenziert und nuanciert, wie fein er beleuchtet, das ist schon ganz außergewöhnlich.

Auch die Carmen-Fantasie erlaubt es dem Vollblutmusiker, in einer Fülle von Ausdrucksvarianten zu schwelgen und doch immer musikalisch showfrei zu bleiben. Die Virtuosität wird nie Selbstzweck und ist doch im Finale der Fantasie rekordverdächtig.

Though the music of this CD could have allowed Yuri Revich to just show off his virtuosity, the young violinist clearly has brains to go with his technical skills. His playing is subtle, nuanced and proves constantly that he commands every shade of color with an innate musicality. Donka Angatscheva plays the piano with the smoothest and most fluent technique and continually produces a sound that skillfully matches the sound of the violinist.

"   "The first concert by RNO and Pletnev in Saratov, featured young soloist - violinist Yury Revich, at 13 barely taller than the orchestra's music stands in a tuneful, lightweight concerto by arch-conservative Soviet composer Kabelevsky, played with secure technique and surprising confidence" "
