For those just discovering this nineteen-year-old American violinist, the term "revelation" aptly applies. For his début in the recording studio he has chosen two seemingly opposed concertos: Mendelssohn's famous violin concerto and the magic concerto composed by his compatriot, John Adams. "Implacably melodic", says Adams of his work - a point the two pieces prove to have in common in this magnificent performance by Kristjan Järvi and his Leipzig Radio Symphony Orchestra.
