BEETHOVEN Violin Concerto, Symphony no.8 – BRAHMS String Sextet no.1 Augustin Dumay violin & conductor, Sinfonia Varsovia, Kansai Philharmonic Orchestra

There’s no whiff of stale routine, and Dumay’s customarily stylish, raptly intense showing, to say nothing of his subtly variegated tonal palette, will enthral his many admirers. […] Dumay also impresses with the baton in a live account of Beethoven’s Eighth Symphony. [In Brahms’ Sextet], nothing is forced in a memorably intuitive rendering.
