Gabetta’s second recording of the Elgar is a big-boned account, vibrant and intense, with richly textured support from Rattle: some listeners may crave a more restrained approach, although there is no denying the power on show. Unequivocally fine, though, is Gabetta’s Martinů: the emotional heart of the first concerto lies in its expansive slow movement, to which she responds with true depth of feeling. Good live sound.
