Notes & Reviews:

For his new project with Avanti, internationally acclaimed violinist Philippe Quint is joined by rising star pianist Lily Maisky for a unique recital featuring the most beloved operatic transcriptions. Recorded with the legendary 1708 "Ruby" Stradivari, Opera Breve features such gems as Figaro's aria from Il Barbiere di Siviglia, "Una Furtiva Lagrima" from l'Elisir d'Amore, Lensky's Aria from Eugene Onegin, "Mon coeur s'ouvre a ta voix" from Samson and Delilah, and Jascha Heifetz's clever arrangements from Porgy and Bess. Taped at the famous Teldex studio in five HD channels, this program is not only a tribute to one of the leading violinists of our generation but also a feast for the ears. With fiery virtuosity, Philippe Quint and Lily Maisky offer an exquisite hour of the most beloved opera aria transcriptions in superlative interpretations.

American Record Guide, January/February 2014
One of the greatest violin and piano transcriptions in the literature is Heifetz's Porgy and Bess Suite, and these musicians give it a reading that would make Heifetz proud, from both a violinistic perspective and a pianistic one. The Castelnuovo-Tedesco is extremely inventive and very exciting. These musicians play it spectacularly. Quint plays the 1708 Ruby Strad, and the recorded sound is wonderfully rich, particularly in the Raff.
