Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine
Gluzman is at his very finest in the Bloch, soaring aloft with a heart-warming intensity that captures the music's melodic plangency to perfection.

Gramophone Magazine
Barber's Concerto is deservedly in the top half-dozen of the 20th-century repertoire. ... a fine performance from Gluzman with a dazzling finale. The orchestra comes off well too, with a beautifully controlled oboe solo, given the theme before the soloist, at the start of the slow movement. There are plenty of recordings of the three works featured here but not many with the effortless command of Gluzman and his 1690 Stradivarius.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Sala Sao Paulo, Brazil (07/2007).
