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.”
Terry Blain, BBC Music Magazine

BBC Radio 3: Disc of the week
Andrew McGregor says: “True to form this is a characterful, colourful account. Mendelssohn’s fairies have their wings in the air as they should but a few of them have their feet on the ground. There’s a rustic edge to the music making which I find very attractive.”
The Guardian: Surely a disc of the year
Nicholas Kenyon writes: “Transparent fairy wind chords, scuttling high strings, braying portamentos and then the edging in of the final wistful string melody – all are incomparably lovely. (…) Surely a disc of the year.”
Your contribution would help transform this recording into a vehicle that drops me off several steps ahead in my career. And for that I would be forever grateful! Thank you for reading this, and I hope I will have the honour of signing your copy of the CD this fall. – Anna Fedorova
