Notes & Reviews:

The fourth release on Onyx from Yuri Bashmet and the Moscow Soloists is a disc of string favorites that have been in the group's repertoire from the very beginning. The Grieg and Tchaikovsky are homages to the forms of baroque and classical music, and in many ways were inspired by Mozart's 'Eine kleine Nachtmusik'. The Moscow Soloists have enjoyed a very successful run. Their first two discs won a Grammy Nomination and Grammy Award respectively, and their most recent recording of Tan Dun and Takemitsu has got great reviews so far.

Gramophone Magazine
The innate classicism of the Grieg and Tchaikovsky is felt as well as heard in deft articulation and elegant nuancing so that the Mozart, far from being the odd man out, is very much a kindred spirit.
