When Tianwa Yang was at kindergarten in China her fingers weren’t strong enough to play the piano, so she picked up a violin.

On this week’s free track for download you can here Yang performing the third movement, Allegro non troppo – Allegro molto vivace, of Mendelssohn’s E minor Violin Concerto with the Sinfonia Finlandia Jyväskylä and conductor Patrick Gallois.

The recording, on the Naxos label, was given five stars by our critic Roger Nichols. In a recent issue of BBC Music Magazine he wrote:

‘In Tianwa Yang we find an artist of exceptional technique and musicianship. Above all, her tone, particularly at the extremes is heart-meltingly beautiful… The E minor Concerto is unreservedly splendid.’
