Notes & Reviews:

The Telegraph, 17th August 2012
It all makes for fascinating listening. Gluzman has an agile technique and tonal range that fit him well for the demands of the D minor Partita's great chaconne and for the other difficulties in this music, but, more importantly, he projects both a sense of style and an interpretative personality that give his playing a magnetic presence.

BBC Music Magazine, October 2012
It's good to hear even a little sense of struggle as he conquers Ysaye's demanding writing. The ten short movements of Auerbach's par.ti.ta refract Bach through a contemporary prism and Gluzman finds even more colour and concentration, captured by the in-depth recording.

Gramophone Magazine, October 2012
Gluzman plays the outer movements [of the Ysaye] with the virtuoso panache that must have been in the composer's mind...Gluzman shows himself to be a fine Bach-player, too. Occasionally I longed for the subtle illumination of phrasing, the sort of light and shade that's much easier to achieve with a Baroque bow...But each movement has a sense of life and poise; the Chaconne is especially impressive.
