“Israeli violin soloist Vadim Gluzman followed, taking a moment to check his strings and then with a cool nod launched into Tchaikovsky’s Violin concerto, dubbed ‘unplayable’ by some violinist at the time of its debut. A composition that is dramatic, witty, playful, musically innovative and as earthy in parts as a gypsy fiddler serenading along the Ural Mountains.… Gluzman was immediately zoned in and his opening bars were steeled and silky. Gluzman [was] a bit cocky in the cadenza but with intent that dives deeper into Tchaikovsky’s edgier accents. The audience coaxed Gluzman back for four bows and he responded in kind with a solo encore of a Bach piece.”
