Notes & Reviews:

This release centers on the Russian composer's concerto output, coupling Nos. 2 and 3 for the piano with those he wrote for the violin. Energetic movement and infectious emotion are in no short supply throughout, and Khrennikov - who appears as the soloist for Piano Concerto No.3 - must have delighted in the fact that three of Russia's most famous wunderkinder (Evgeny Kissin, Vadim Repin and Maxim Vengerov) appeared alongside for the live recording of these works. Each of the musical starlets subsequently abandoned the USSR, having barely crossed the threshold into adolescence; this 1988 recording therefore offers a rare glimpse into their early careers, playing the music of a man who spent his whole life standing guard over the 'iron curtain.'

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
These concertos are enjoyable. The orchestration is colorful, and the development is sound and the compositional pacing pleasing. The real joys are in hearing Vengerov at a mere 14 and Repin and Kissin at 18 playing so well. (Vengerov's intonation has certainly improved in the intervening years). The orchestra plays well. These are concert recordings with very good sound. Notes in English.
