Korean born British violinist Joo Yeon Sir is a name to watch. The Strad magazine reviewing a Wigmore Hall concert commented 'Exuberant…feline and seductive, rattling off the fiendish cadenza with bravura and oodles of personality'
That personality comes to the fore in this eclectic and emotionally wide ranging recital of suites and fantasies by a group of composers you won't often find together on a concert programme. Britten's youthfully precocious Suite op 6, Milhaud's suave 'Le Boeuf sur la toit' and Frolov's effervescent fantasy on themes from Gershwin's 'Porgy & Bess' rub shoulders with Schnittke's affectionate harking back to the baroque, and de Falla's passionate Popular Spanish Songs.
