American Record Guide, September/October 2013
The soloist in all of these works, Konstanty Kulka, is recorded with greater clarity. Kulka is the leading Polish violinist after the venerable Wanda Wilkomirska. He still has these extremely demanding works securely in his fingers and produces a firm, full tone in all registers. The most interesting part of this release for me was actually the booklet. It quotes a Polish author, apparently Lipinski, at length concerning the transforming event of his life: his meeting with Nicolo Paganini in 1817. Lipinski portrays Paganini and the other Italians as charming lunatics. Perhaps the most impressive thing about this release is the consistent quality of the music. It is charming, virtuosic music stylistically consistent with the period. If that appeals to you, this would be a good acquisition.
