Notes & Reviews:

"[Gil Shaham's] interpretations are full of successfully taken risks, and even though there are a few blemished notes here and there, the musical aspects of his performance far outweigh any such minor faults, which only go to prove that even Gil Shaham is human. Balance between pianos is spot on this time, with Gil stepping aside in volume when Orli clearly has the dominant part; Orli's playing is also much more aggressive, forceful, and fulfilling here than in the Mozart recording. After a success like this one, listeners can only hope Gil will release another album of Prokofiev's solo violin works and the Sonata for Two Violins." -All Music Guide
