Reviews

“The most delicate, exquisite account I think I’ve heard of Beethoven’s Violin Concerto…heart-stopping in its beauty.” (The Herald) 

“Alina Pogostkina impressed with her huge, vibrant sound, created a magical atmosphere in the second movement of Korngold’s violin concerto, with its dreamlike moments reminiscent of Korngold’s sublime opera Die Tote Stadt, and positively exploded in the technical fireworks of the third movement with a stunning display of virtuosity that could only be described as electrifying.” (San Diego Reader)

“Pogostkina is appropriately passionate but never overstates things.” (The Strad)
