Recital in Bloomington, Indiana- September 2010
Bendix-Balgley…gave clear articulation to Mozart’s Sonata in G Major, K.301, and effervescence to Beethoven’s “Spring” Sonata, Opus 24, with its radiant slow movement. He seemed to toss off as music all too easy to play the not at all easy to play.
Prokofiev D Major Sonata Number 2, as well as two of the Paganini Caprices, the Number 2, with its multiple crisscrossings over non-adjacent strings, and the famous Number 24, surely one of the most difficult pieces ever written for the violin. That bow of his danced acrobatically throughout. Of the plaintive “Hebrew Melody,” he made an ardent song.
