Notes & Reviews:

"Shaham is his usual self here, technically superhuman and very stylish. Indeed, he plays Jascha Heifetz's Gershwin arrangements with nearly as much panache as Heifetz does. The Copland Nocturne is a fine piece of American night music...The Copland sonata is in the composer's recognizable dignified idiom. The Barber is a soft, lovely, meditative work with currents of anxiety beneath its quiet surface." -Magil, ARG
