Notes & Reviews:

These well constructed and delightful works contain beautiful melodic writing and comprise a fantastic disc illustrating Paganini's genius.

BBC Music Magazine
Some of Paganini's most innocuous music played with a legato, vibrato-laden, mid-20th-century style.

American Record Guide, July / August 2012
The playing is buoyant, warm, and rich, and the music is comfortable and very pleasant.
