Notes & Reviews:

"[Davidoff's] First Cello Concerto can best be summed up as a cross between Schumann and Weber with a strong predilection for the singing Tchaikovskian line. There are some lovely melodies here. His lively rhythmic writing in the finale is also good. One can see where Saint-Saëns, Glazunov and Frank Bridge drew their inspiration. Clearly we have a virtuoso composer here but one who recognises the need for substantial ideas and emotions rather than death-defying feats. Davidoff also has the capacity to deliver emotionally-rounded ideas and development... Wen-Sinn Yang gives all signs of having mastered the three works and with spirited sympathetic playing from the orchestra the effect is delightful. The chosen acoustic is full of life. There is no occlusion of the attractive incidents of these three works for cello and orchestra." -MusicWeb

Gramophone Magazine
Yang has an immaculate technique, with perfect intonation... [his performances have] an extra degree of persuasiveness and individuality.
