WQXR: Paul Moravec’s “Intensely Lyrical Violin Concerto”

WQXR reviews the new release by Paul Moravec on Naxos featuring Violin Concerto, Shakuhachi Quintet, Equilibrium, and Evermore featuring Maria Bachmann, violin; James Nyoraku Schefler, shakuhachi; Stephen Gosling, piano; Voxare String Quartet; Symphony in C conducted by Rossen Milanov.

Describing the Violin Concerto the review says in part:

Bachmann plays with a high gloss that makes obvious Moravec’s gifts for lyrical writing, both in the concerto itself and in a pair of works for violin and piano: the pensive Equilibrium, composed for the present album; and the effusive, old-fashioned album leaf Evermore (2004).
