Review: Mozart with the Auckland Philharmonia

Auckland Philharmonia Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra with Eckehard Stier

Mozart Violin Concerto No.4

“American violinist Noah Bendix-Balgley was a lithe, urbane soloist in Mozart’s K 218 Concerto, showing the assurance and sangfroid of an Olympic athlete in truly Olympian music. Deft at tracing a shapely line along with the many twists and turns of the mercurial finale, Bendix-Balgley seemed to be conspiring with Stier to dispense stylish and guilt-free pleasure. The violinist’s numerous original cadenzas were charmingly apt, with poignant double-stopping in the Andante cantabile. His encore was a Bach Gavotte en Rondeau, crisp and sonorous, with a breathtaking burst of ornamentation saved for the end.”
