AllMusic Review by

Across the globe, the sound of the violin touches the soul, attracting more vibrant performers every day. Stars such as Sarah Chang achieve technical brilliance and imbue it with the energy of youth. Since her first recording at age nine, Chang has developed into a nuanced, masterful violinist.

SWEET SORROW features many pieces often associated with an earlier generation of virtuoso. The comparison serves Chang well, as her interpretations can stand alongside the likes of Joseph Joachim.

This compilation of recordings made between 1991 and 1998 shows Chang's development as a performer as well as capturing the spark that made her talent evident so early.
