This is an intense and exceptional performance by Uto Ughi. Every track is beautiful, but my heart goes with the Paganini and how the violin sings on it. The recording is from a live concert which includes some applause from the audience. Otherwise, it is perfect in every respect.
The album has excellent reconstruction of the hall ambience. The sound of the violin is very well done. At the begin of “Thai’s meditation” (Massenet) there is the voice of Ughi that introduces this famous piece.
I love this kind of recording and Senor Giulio Cesare Ricci (owner and sound engineer of Fonè) did another excellent job.
