Boris Belkin doesn’t shy away one bit from the showier aspects of Paganini’s echt-virtuoso Violin Concerto No. 1. Indeed, he’s only too happy to indulge the music’s many opportunities for bravura, right from the opening of the large-scale, formidable first movement, with its high-wire-act of a cadenza. The violinist’s technique is beyond reproach, with many passages that stun for their sheer audacity as well as accuracy. Yet Belkin is sensitive enough of a musician to find the poetry and poignancy that lie beneath the surface sizzle, as he offers a gently moving Adagio and a confident, vivacious rendering of the festive finale.
