    Affairs of the Heart

    ELENA LANGER

    Platch

    ALFRED SCHNITTKE

    Concerto for Three

    Roman Mints, violin
    Maxim Rysanov, viola
    Kristine Blaumane, cello
    New Prague Sinfonia
    West Kazakhstan Philharmonic Orchestra
    Mikel Toms, conductor

    “The Russian violinist Roman Mints demonstrates a huge talent in this stimulating disc of contemporary works…The emotive demands of the solo part require Mints to scale vertiginous heights: as a showpiece of hysterical lament, Elena Langer’s Platch succeeds admirably…With the version [of Schnittke’s Concerto for Three] by its dedicatees Gidon Kremer, Yuri Bashmet and Rostropovich currently unavailable this is a highly competitive account.” Performance: * * * * *

    “…Another first-rate performance rounds out a highly recommended issue, which even the most conservative of readers should urgently seek out.”
