Notes & Reviews:

Cecylia Arzewski was concertmaster of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra from 1990-2008, and was previously a member of the Boston Symphony, becoming the BSO's Assistant Concertmaster. In 1987, she joined the Cleveland Orchestra as Associate Concertmaster for three years before coming to Atlanta. Born in Krakow, Poland, Ms. Arzewski began her violin studies at the age of five, studying at the Tel Aviv Conservatory with Odeon Partos; Ivan Galamian at Juilliard and Meadowmount; and Joseph Silverstein, at the New England Conservatory of Music. Ms. Arzewski was also coached by Josef Gingold and Jascha Heifetz. She retired from her position with the Atlanta Symphony in order to devote her time to the recording of the present project, Bach's monumental Sonatas and Partitas.

American Record Guide, November/December 2012
Cecylia Arzewski is a good violinist who plays these works with clean bowing and good intonation. Her approach is the kind that was common in the 1950s and 60s, untouched by period performance practice. Her problem is simply that she is up against tremendous competition. For this approach I prefer Nathan Milstein or Henryk Szeryng. They give a little something extra: more passion, more excitement, more drama, more charisma.
