Notes & Reviews:

Jacques Loussier achieved immense worldwide popular success combining the music of J.S. Bach and jazz improvisation with his Play Bach Trio. Loussier's focus has since turned more towards composing, his predilection for fusing jazz and classical elements expressed at its most economical in these two Violin Concertos. Eloquent expressiveness and colorful use of percussion characterize the First Concerto, while the Indian influence in the Second Concerto emerges through violin improvisation and rhythmic counterpoint from the tabla. Like Loussier, Paderewski was a piano virtuoso who turned to composition in later life, the Violin Sonata being one of his finest earlier works.

MusicWeb International, 30th July 2014
The music [Loussier's] is very likeable in a neo-Bachian way...[the Paderewski is] a lovely piece. The chirpy and flighty finale also flies on mellifluous wings and is only briefly flecked with salon atmosphere.
