Notes & Reviews:

Time Transcending is a musical journey through the world of violin playing. It ranges from the characteristic universal order of Bach's Chaconne, through the agitating drama of the Ballade by Ysaÿe and the motifs of Berio's Sequenza repeating themselves under high tension, to the ascending movement of Paganini's famous Caprice No. 24 through the Rochberg Variations, suffering fragmentation like a cubist painting. It continues with the virtuoso variations of a melancholy Irish folksong, "The Last Rose," colliding onto the destructive and corrosive power of the clockwork of Bräm, finally reaching its end in the sounds of devotion of the last movement of Messiaen's "Quatuor pour le fin de Temps," dying away at a high altitude.

American Record Guide, September / October 2012
Heinrich Wilhelm Ernst's variations on The Last Rose of Summer is one of the most difficult solo violin pieces in the literature. Ernst's demands (combinations of fingered harmonics, left-hand pizzicato, and arpeggios all over the instrument) are simply impossible for most violinists. Dodds seems to enjoy the difficulties. He treats them lyrically and lovingly. The spectacle is so awe-inspiring that all I can do is throw my hands up in the air and smile.
