Notes & Reviews:

"Koh offers three works for violin and orchestra by three very different Eastern European composers, none of them over-exposed and all of them distinctive. In other words, the complete program is as coherent and well thought-out as the performances are outstanding Koh deserves full credit for agreeing to sit out the finale, which is for orchestra only, in favor of higher musical values. And that, in a nutshell, is what this entire program offers, captured in state-of-the-art, warmly tactile, ideally balanced live sonics." -Classics Today (10/10)
