Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Viola Magazine
Both these especially lyrical works were composed specifically for (these) star players whose recordings have generally been accepted as definitive...

Cello Magazine
Improving on Bashmet's recordings... was never going to be easy. Oteher performers may play the piece, but Bashmet lives it.

Gramophone
The Schnittke concerto was written for Gutman, and she takes possession of it with playing that blazes with emotional conviction as well as technical command... it comes to life...
