Notes & Reviews:

Pierre Rode's concertos represent the full flowering of the French violin school, the origins of which can be traced back to his teacher Viotti's arrival in Paris in 1782. Bold and youthful, the First Violin Concerto contrasts with the more pastoral and introspective moods of the Fifth Violin Concerto, while the Ninth was written during the composer's stay in Russia. All three works share Rode's signature finales which 'sparkle with gracefulness, piquancy and impishness'. Performed using painstakingly prepared new editions, this is the third of five volumes containing all thirteen of Rode's Violin Concertos.

Gramophone Magazine, July 2015
His First Concerto is firmly in the tradition of Viotti, his mentor, in its bold, impassioned minor-key manner. Eichhorn relishes the virtuosity of the writing, as well as the delicacy of some of the passagework and the classical poise of the more lyrical moments...all in all, the issue makes us well aware of Rode's gifts as a composer.

American Record Guide, November/December 2015
What I'll say is that violinist Eichhorn and conductor Pasquet have a very fine grasp of the idiom of the period. The performances are lively and crisp and as expressive as the music will allow. Sure, it's possible for Rode to get even more attentive, sympathetic modern interpreters attuned to the expressive variety of his music. Recorded sound is excellent. There's clarity, definition, and firmness to the orchestral tone, with Mr Eichhorn's playing, now sweet and caressing, now sterner and intense, nicely integrated into the overall sound picture. I've been describing Rode's work by mentioning other composers he sounds somewhat like. There's a lot of value. Yes, Naxos has done it again.
