CDs: “Passion Ysaÿe,” Rachel Kolly D’Alba, (Warner Classics and Jazz).This 29-year-old Swiss with flaming red hair and goth-black eye makeup is the next in a long line of gorgeous young violinists. She could be, easily, an actress in a French new wave film. She is also a remarkable player — she brings a huge technique, intense musicality and, yes, genuine passion to Ysaÿe’s six solo violin sonatas, once underrated but no more.
— Mark Swed
Young violin virtuoso Rachel Kolly D'Alba is a formidable interpreter of Belgian composer Eugene Ysaye's sonatas.
