In an effort to promote the coverage of live violin performance, Violinist.com each week presents links to reviews of notable concerts and recitals around the world. This week one of our selections is from James Ehnes who premiered the Kernis with the Seattle Symphony. Here are a couple of reviews.

The SunBreak: "...this has to count as one of the most challenging solo roles out there, and Ehnes was completely in charge of it."

The Seattle Times: "Lengthy, complex and assertive, the new concerto demands almost superhuman agility and stamina of Ehnes, the soloist for whom it was written, and he rose to the challenge."
