Momo & Mari Kodama (piano), Sarah & Deborah Nemtanu (violin), Magali Demesse (viola), Orchestre Philharmonique de Marseille, Lawrence Foster
The biggest challenge here is the Concerto for Two Pianos…the Kodama sisters’ approach with Lawrence Foster and the very fine Marseille Philharmonic Orchestra (who knew?) is less mellow, more... — More…
Mihaela Costea (violin), Esther Georgie (clarinet), Cyril Dupuy (cimbalom), Jonathan Luxton & Kenneth Best (natural horns)
Gulbenkian Orchestra, Lawrence Foster
As a leading interpreter of the music of Enescu, it's hardly surprising that Lawrence Foster should feel such a strong empathy with the Ligeti, and he delivers a committed performance with the... — More…

Arabella Steinbacher (violin)
WDR Symphony Orchestra, Lawrence Foster
Steinbacher is predictably eloquent [in the song arrangements], the playing classy. But the violin itself struggles to project in what are already string-heavy orchestrations, at a tessitura... — More…
