Alexandre Da Costa – O’Connell 2018
March 29, 2017 Sarah Wade

“Violinist Alexandre Da Costa-Graveline began operations with an ardent reading of Falla’s Suite populaire espagnole. This performance proved memorable for the impressive power of both the Polo and Jota dances which set aside all conceptions of the suite itself as a benign collection of bagatelles… you could simply sit back and appreciate the emphatic address of these players…
the two string players’ dynamism even in unison/octave passages during the Autumn and Spring movements… the post-interval reading of Mendelssohn in D minor came across as sharply defined, crisp… Da Costa-Graveline and Clerici made a moving creature of the repeated first melody to the meltingly fine central Andante”
