"The excitement built through the last movement.  This is a whirl of a piece and Hanslip was dazzling in the subtleties — the flashes of light and shadow, the lightning-fast triplets. There was tremendous excitement ... Hanslip wrapped up the piece with dash, and the full house thundered to its feet, applauding." [Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto]
