Elgar & Finzi Violin Concertos

“Ning Feng makes light work of Elgar’s challenging intricacies, ensuring the music shimmers and takes flight… Feng also avoids the interpretative pitfall of over-ruminating, yet when the music turns magically inward … he finds a way of capturing its half-whispered intimacy without becoming bogged down in a mire of portamento-laden espressivo.”
The Strad, February 2019

“Feng is a poet too. His first entry in Elgar’s Concertoquickly turns introspective, and the famous Windflower’ theme quivers with sentient fragility. A dignified tenderness pervades Feng’s account of the Andante, his sweetly resinous tone suggesting the mingled pain and pleasure of unspoken, distant memories… Not a bar of it is uninvolving.”
