Notes & Reviews:

"Here is another super-budget issue from Naxos that vies with the best available, both in performance and recording...Ilya Kaler, born in Moscow in 1963, is a pupil of Leonid Kogan, and winner of the Moscow Tchaikovsky Competition among other prizes and awards...Once again his technique is flawless, with playing that is not only brilliant but consistently beautiful tonally, and ideally clean in articulation, with every note precisely placed..." -EG, Gramophone
