"Gabetta's second recording of the Elgar is a big-boned account, vibrant and intense, with richly textured support from Rattle: some listeners may crave a more restrained approach, although there is no denying the power of show. Unequivocally fine, though, is Gabetta's Martinu: the emotional heart of the first concerto lies in its expansive slow movement, to which she responds with true depth of feeling. Good live sound."
[...] "But her tempo is immediately convincing and musically coherent. It pays off with a transcendent pair of inner movements in which beauty is never defeated by melancholy, and the tremors of an old man’s regrets are laid to rest with a blessing. [...] This is five-star music making, no doubt about it."
