Notes & Reviews:

"...What is surprising and valuable about this disc is that I have never heard about half of the works here before, and they are consistently interesting. One is the playful Castelnuovo-Tedesco that begins the disc. It is a delight...The Rosenkavalier waltzes are effective...As usual, Shaham plays like he was born on the planet Krypton. A pleasant hour for those interested in little-known violin repertory." -Magil, ARG
