Charlie Siem Plays Bruch, Wieniawski & Bull

Charlie Siem Plays Bruch, Wieniawski & Bull by Charlie Siem
Released: Aug 2011
Label: Warner Classics International
Although the crop of young classical soloists who've caught the popular eye all seem to have model-quality looks, Charlie Siem is the only one who's actually had his own Vogue spread. As if to prove that he's more than just a pretty face, the 25-year-old violinist charges headlong into brutally difficult literature, including the explosive and technically staggering Wieniawski, which opens the recording, and Bruch, which may be the most recorded concerto of recent years. With all the fireworks, the Bull seems a bit tacked-on but, to Siem's credit, he even executes schmaltz with icy brilliance.
