Notes & Reviews:

"The range of color and dynamic shading she brings to Stephen Prutsman's 15-minute Der Rosenkavalier fantasia makes the violin writing seem more varied in mood and texture than it often is... In addition to providing colorful and sharply characterized accompaniments, Benjamin Loeb proves an effective transcriber in his own right as he skillfully transforms Bizet's famous Pearl Fishers duet for violin and viola. Naxos' excellent engineering and booklet notes seal my recommendation with a solid "10/10"." -Classics Today
