Notes & Reviews:

"Crusell's concertos have never quite achieved the popularity they deserve...They...are beautifully crafted and tremendously enjoyable...Kari Kriikku performs beautifully in every respect, combining wonderfully expressive playing in the lyrical sections with effortless virtuosity in the bravura passages...Equally impressive is the stylish support from the excellent young conductor Sakari Oramo...This disc should set the standard for future performances." ***** -Payne, BBC
