Kurt Nikkanen

William Walton: Violin Concerto
New Haven Symphony/William Boughton
NIMBUS ALLIANCE

"The concerto comes off best. Kurt Nikkanen marries a lovely tone in all registers (he's terrific in the high passage work) with a technical fearlessness that's really impressive."  CLASSICS TODAY

COLLINS CLASSICS
"These thoughtful, brilliantly played and immaculately tuned performances naturally take their place amongst the very best now available.
