Fagerlund: Violin concerto, Ignite - Kuusisto, Lintu        (10 of 10 found this review helpful)
  July 28, 2015

Since none of our more musically knowledgeable folks has submitted a review of this outstanding disc I'll take the bit between my teeth and try not to embarrass myself or Mr. Fagerlund.

In doing so I've acknowledged that I share the Lutheran spiritual tradition with both JSB and Suzuki, and that I find the devotional quality of these performances ... more
