Notes & Reviews:

"Leonidas Kavakos and Peter Nagy treat Ravel's apprentice opus with considerable respect, relishing its many opportunities for sensuous harmonic indulgence, but without sacrificing a necessary sense of forward momentum. In the much better-known 'Tzigane', it's refreshing to find Kavakos carefully building up a sense of anticipation in the long opening solo, rather than opting for the more conventional full-frontal assault." ***** - Erik Levi, BBC
