“Meeting the young star violinist Alena Baeva in Beethoven's Violin Concerto was an unexpected change that left no one disappointed. A giant work, it seems simple, but that is exactly why it is so hard to play; yet Baeva’s interpretation gave it a new enchanting glow.”

“The young soloist, Alena Baeva, was an expressive, sparkling counterpoint to the dignified, calm Michail Jurowski. However, they developed a very fine interplay, with close and responsive cooperation. I have never heard this violin concerto played with such fine nuances and such low-voiced parts in the second movement, Larghetto. Baeva’s sounds was sheer, almost fragile, but it came through the orchestra.”

"The centrepiece... was Tchaikovsky's Concerto... with as soloist the flamboyant Alena Baeva. The Russian violinist gave a flawless account... There were moments of great beauty, like the virtuosic force of the lovely first movement cadenza, with no resort to acrobatics, and she carried off without flaccidity the intimacy of the Canzoneta. Baeva, with her powerful technique as well as supple and flexible sound..." La Critica, Ricardo Hontanon, Alto Liston sinfonico, El Diario Montanes 26/08/2012

""...Baeva's music passion is tenderness... She plays with no pressure, very soft, without the gesture of the "big sound" and can thus develop in all shades of iron and accurate, balance her magical musical colors... most genuine Mendelssohn." (The link to the original article in German is here)
