Sibelius himself once said “When I play the violin, it is as though the insides of the music opened up to me.” So it is no surprise that his only violin concerto is a masterpiece featuring lush melodies and sweeping movements, perfectly blending drama and technical virtuosity.

The Strad described Esther Yoo as “the model of a violin soloist in the modern age. Intelligent, articulate and self-possessed, she is so much more than a technical virtuoso.”

Prokofiev described his Fifth Symphony as “a hymn to free and happy Man, to his mighty powers, his pure and noble spirit.”
