Prokofiev Violin Concerto No.1 / Mariinsky Orchestra, cond. Valery Gergiev

Guardian, September 2016

"As soloist in the Violin Concerto No.1, Kristóf Baráti started at the other extreme of audibility, his honeyed tone and intense intimacy willing the orchestra into submission. With his delicate sculpting of phrases and welcome injections of expressive breathing space, Baráti brought a degree of care and fragility that was all too absent from the rest of the programme."
