4+5 stars in BBC | Ning Feng

BBC Music Magazine just published a review of the recent release of Ning Feng – Elgar & Finzi Violin Concertos, with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and Carlos Miguel Prieto, conductor. It seems the reviewer Terry Blain liked what he heard!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Performance
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Recording

“Ning Feng is a technically immaculate player (…) Feng is a poet too”

“pin-point accurate and tingles with focused intensity”

“All said, though, his deeply considered account of Elgar’s Concerto is the real reason for buying this disc. Not a bar of it is uninvolving, and the recorded sound is excellent.”
