Winner of the Warner Prize, first recording as an exclusive artist presents a new recording of the concertos by Brahms and Ligeti.
The Ligeti Concerto includes new cadenzas written by Thomas Ades especially for Augustin - never-before recorded.
"The remarkable violinist's pairing of concertos is unusual, but oddly satisfying. In general, Brahms is gloriously undermined by Ligeti, flying free of traditional notions of tuning, phrasing, balance, yet somehow rejoining tradition in the process." Sunday Times
"Hadelich's performance of Brahms's Violin Concerto abounds with subtle detail… In this age of historically informed practice, I'm tempted to describe this as a resolutely traditional interpretation… The Ligeti Concerto is also given what might be described as a traditional reading… His propensity for finding lyricism in unexpected places doesn't mitigate any of the music's visceral thrill."
