Notes & Reviews:

"Shaham scales the virtuosic heights of such pieces as Tartini's 'Devil's Trill' Sonata, Grieg's brief yet fiendishly difficult 'Puck" and Bazzini's 'La ronde des lutins' with astonishing technical mastery, but in the end it is the delicate and considered restraint of his partnership with pianist Jonathan Feldman that ensures a wonderful litheness and depth of expression in these colourful pieces." ***** -Nelson, BBC
