Yuko Inoue press reviews
Violist Yuko Inoue has a sound that any string player would die for.
A romantic programme of viola music from Yuko Inoue is a delight from start to finish. Yuko Inoue produces and absolutely ravishing sound
As a result, the performances are still buoyant and electric with discovery, even when there's a sense of suppressed drama, as in the opening Vivace of BWV1029… listen to the Apollonian beauty in the Andante from BWV1029.
A nicely produced recording….beautifully thought out and realised by both artists….an intellectually satisfying performance to which I have returned many times.
Free of period-instrument affectation and phrased with heartfelt sensitivity, these fine performances will inspire you to marvel afresh at Bach's invention.
The playing throughout is plainly an unlaboured labour of love
This is a CD that may well leave you wondering where the viola repertory has been all your life
Her elegant tone, well focused but warm, is heard at its best in Glazunov's Elegy, a lovely performance in which the melodic line is beautifully shaped.
A beautifully recorded selection of little-known gems
Yuko Inoue, who has a splendid tone and technique, brought a fine expression to the serene poetry of the first movement and epilogue of Walton's Viola Concerto.
Miss Inoue is a viola player with natural musical sense and spacious imagination.....she gave a wonderfully fresh performance.
A well-modulated, rich tone and driving energy propelled Yuko Inoue through hindemtih's Sonata Op11 No4 and Brahm's Sonata in Eb Op120 No2
The masterfully handled viola playing of Yuko Inoue sounded supple, mellow and assured.
