Last night I discovered the existence of Vilde Frang, a young Norwegian violinist of mind-blowing brilliance and musicianship. Her Korngold (yes, yes, I know, more korn than gold ) Concerto is the best on record. For those old enough to remember, in the second movement her sound in the upper register reminds me of the heavenly heights of Henryk Szeryng and Nathan Milstein. If she ever comes to Athens I’ll be there, in the front row, at any price.
Update: my violin-playing daughter says: Duh.
