Magical debut for challenging concerto
Cleveland Plain Dealer
...Brouwer's Concerto for Violin and Chamber Orchestra adds another fine vehicle to the repertoire... Brouwer finds a keen balance between contemporary and tonal language throughout her fresh creation which Wiancko played to the brilliant hilt. CityMusic's concertmanster tossed off the dizzying demands with extraordinary confidence and focus. Her sound remained shimmering, whether she was walking technical tightropes or sending songful lines aloft. Gaffigan and the orchestra were equal to Brouwer's inventive colors.
