“Everything’s perflectly judged: the scherzo of the First Concerto whizzes past, and the finale’s ticking clock has the right amount of dry wit. The end is a treat, Batiashvili and Nézet-Séguin disappearing into the ether, arm in arm . . . These are technically immaculate, thoughtful performances, handsomely recorded.” — The Arts Desk

After the outstanding critical acclaim of her previous album of the Tchaikovsky and Sibelius Violin Concertos with Staatskapelle Berlin and Daniel Barenboim, Lisa Batiashvili presents a masterful version of Prokofiev’s two violin concertso in another first-class musical partnership with Yannick Nézet-Séguin and the Chamber Orchestra of Europe. With her unique talent to turn standard repertoire into something new, fresh, elegant and special, this album will allow the listener to rediscover Prokofiev through the artist’s eyes. Of particular note are selections Prokofiev’s famous ballets, newly arranged for solo violin and orchestra by Tamás Batiashvili, Lisa’s father.
