Notes & Reviews:

The Violin Concerto is the most intimate of Beethoven's instrumental works. The cadenzas, from the hand of Russian-Canadian Airat Ichmouratov, take pride of place in this interpretation. A clarinettist and conductor in his own right, Ichmouratov connects with Beethoven's vision of a world made limitless through the spirituality of art and faith. He transforms Beethoven's music incorporating classical music, klezmer and folklore from the four corners of the world: all enter into the visionary improvisation based on the substance of Beethoven's musical center.

Gramophone Magazine, January 2014
Da Costa, with a clear, ringing tone and pure intonation, has excellent qualifications for this concerto...The account of the Seventh Symphony similarly offers neat, polished playing and beautiful overall sound but without the feeling of living dangerously...These are polished performances.
