First, there's innocence. Then, duality and attack. Exhaustion of love. Humpiness of anger. Attempts of reaching out. Mockery, humiliation. So many caprices in one movement!
This recording has a firm and solid leading from both the conductor and the soloist. Across all the moods, there's constant inner shining in it.
