Gramophone Recording of the Month: "These are urgently communicative, potentially transformative accounts of scores which, if no longer confined to the fringes of the repertoire, have yet to command universal admiration...Vilde Frang writes that it has long been her wish to bring together two of her favourite concertos. If you’ve been impressed by her previous releases you’ll already have this one marked down as a compulsory purchase and likely Awards contender."
The Guardian: "Her sound is superb – icy, fiery, whispered, ultra-rich – and her phrases pour out fearlessly, urgently. It’s a fresh and convincing performance."
"An effortless lyricism and an unreal, shining sweetness of tone, no matter how high she soars...Vilde Frang produces sounds that are as beguiling as her technique is astonishing." - The Strad Recommended Album.
