Notes & Reviews:

Naxos's Suzuki Evergreens albums feature acclaimed violinist Takako Nishizaki who, as a child, studied with her father, Shinji, and with Shinichi Suzuki himself. Her father was active in the early stages of the development of the Suzuki Method and for many years taught at the Matsumoto summer school and organized the Suzuki activities in the Nagoya area after Shinichi Suzuki had moved to Matsumoto. Takako Nishizaki was the first student to complete the now famous Suzuki course and was awarded a teacher's diploma at the tender age of nine.

At the age of nine, Takako Nishizaki became the first student to complete the (then new) Suzuki method, which her father Shinji Nishizaki helped to develop and subsequently taught. This seven-disc series of "Suzuki Evergreens" is thus a touching tribute both to her father and to her famous teacher, and it would be difficult to imagine a project like this realized with more obvious affection or lavished with more care... This third volume sustains a level of interest well beyond the didactic. The two "learning" concertos by Friedrich Seitz (for violin and piano) are delightful, and certainly reward repeated listening.. Nishizaki's singing tone and unaffected phrasing ensures that the music's melodic charm really shines. Terence Dennis accompanies with all the necessary sensitivity and discretion... Given the highly varied provenance of these recordings and the very different forces required, the engineering is consistently good. Violin students, whether Suzuki trained or not, certainly should collect this series. Regular listeners with an interest in this repertoire should start with this third volume, and move on to the other discs at will." -ClassicsToday (10/9)
