"Clearly, Holliger's concerto is not a light-hearted piece, but nor is it emptily depressing or disheartening. Since Soutter studied with Ysaÿe, Holliger starts from Ysaÿe's short Third Sonata ... and the first three movements offer a dazzling portrait of virtuosity under strain. The Epilogue is much tougher, but Holliger does not totally renounce all suggestions of compassion for human victims of violence and fanaticism. This may be ageing, agonised music, but its effect, in context, is less of futility than of hushed awe in the face of a creative impulse that, however strongly attacked, refuses to lie down and die.
These positive impressions owe much to the artistry of Thomas Zehetmair. Few violinists today can equal his commitment to contemporary music... Zehetmair is no less commanding in the Ysaÿe...
As for the recording, it is affirmative in its own way, giving a needle-sharp aural image of the concerto's progress from bright colours and brittle textures to dark evanescence."

Heinz Holliger's Violin Concerto, subtitled "Hommage à Louis Soutter", is a musical portrait of the innovative Swiss painter who began his artistic career as a violinist, studying with the great Eugène Ysaÿe . Arguing that his painterly activity was an extension of his playing, Holliger "translates" Soutter's agitated brushstrokes into pitches. Soutter's troubled relationship to Ysaÿe is one of the concerto's conceptual themes, as is the militant pacifism that found expression in his canvasses. In all, a fascinating, highly-detailed work, played with fiery intensity by Thomas Zehetmair, whose account of Ysaÿe's third sonata - astonishing in its own right - becomes here a highly effective 'foreword' to the Holliger composition, laying bare one of its inspirational sources.
