The Critic's Chair for 1 September 2013

From The Critic's Chair, 12:00 pm on 1 September 2013

Kenneth Young reviews four very contrasting recordings this week on The Critic's Chair: the much anticipated new release of Bartok violin concerti by Isabelle Faust with the Swedish Radio Symphony and conductor Daniel Harding, and a disc of renaissance music by the Stockholm Chamber Brass. Also, two new piano discs: Pierre-Laurent Aimard's interpretation of Debussy's Preludes, and the young pianist-composer Conrad Tao with his varied Voyages.
