“Here (Berio) Derome shows the extent of her technical facility and her imaginative grasp of this supremely difficult work in her ability to sustain its potency and drama through to the glorious stillness of the ending.” The Strad, London
«Derome is clearly a star in the making.» BBC Music Magazine 98 (Sound and Performance*****)
When composers came, in the second half of the 20th century, to venture into new territories of violin literature, they were naturally inclined towards the pushing back of boundaries, often making extreme technical demands. Performers found themselves adapting traditional methods to meet the challenge of these new modes of playing. Today, therefore, we look on in amazement as violinists such as the award-winning Julie-Anne Derome reveal to us the seemingly limitless capacities of the human machine.
