BARTÓK ENESCU

“Frang rises to the works' passionate lyricism and dazzles in partnership with Mikko Franck and the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France.”
BBC MUSIC MAGAZINE

”Absolutely stunning. Had the Heifetz-Piatigorsky team tackled Enescu’s string Octet, I doubt that they would have topped this version by Vilde Frang and friends...What most absorbs me about this wonderful piece are its rich ingredients, an aspect that Frang and her collaborators appear to relish to the full”
GRAMOPHONE

”Frang and friends make a gutsy, quasi-orchestral sound in Enescu’s Octet of 1900 (so much so that I had to check that the recording didn’t use the version which the composer sanctioned for full string-section), with plenty of gypsy dash in the outer movements in particular; an entirely persuasive bit of advocacy for a piece that really deserves to be recorded and performed more often.”
PRESTO CLASSICAL

“This is a marvellously played pair of works by the contemporaries Bartok and Enescu...Enescu’s precocious Octet in C is a magnificent structure, realised here by wonderful soloists including Frang and the violist Lawrence Power.”
