Well hello, London! Came back to a fantastic review of my Tchaikovsky CD in the Gramophone: “ Alexandra Dariescu has been garnering accolades for the past 10 years or so, and from this debut concerto disc I can well see why. She has no need of gimmicks to make her mark, such is her rounded musicianship and maturity of temperament…fastidious attention to the score. Dariescu has plenty of power and agility too, but again she deploys them strictly for the sake of the music rather than for her own glory. Blend of fantasy and control. This is a more than impressive calling card for an artist who looks set for a fine career.” Thank you, David Fanning!
