Notes and Editorial Reviews

Some violinists strike sparks; Arturo Delmoni gives off warmth. This is one of our most beloved recordings and great favorite with listeners of all backgrounds. It reaches out to people who may not know much about classical music, they just know that they want beauty in their lives. What distinguishes Songs My Mother Taught Me are the things that distinguish all Delmoni’s recordings: emotional resonance, a very inward looking, sensitive musical approach, simply gorgeous tone, and technique so good that it need not call attention to itself. -- John Marks

"Some of these pieces can be found on recordings by Perlman, Zukerman, Gingold, and others, but no one plays them any more beautifully or convincingly. It is the sort of
Read more infectiously attractive disc that brings knowing listeners in from the next room to ask, "Who is that wonderful violinist?" He's Arturo Delmoni, and you should hear him!" -- Alan Heatherington, American Record Guide

"...the prize goes to Arturo Delmoni, whose warmly-played selections include, besides a well-chosen set of Kreisler arrangements, Smetana’s From the Home Country, which, although lasting a bit under five minutes, is a minor masterpiece." -- Paul Turok, Ovation

 Thanks for the memories! February 27, 2013 By P. Miller (Falls Church, VA) See All My Reviews "We had this on casette tape and often would take it along on road trips. I came across the tape some weeks ago and regretfully decided it probably had to go as we no longer have a player. I was delighted to find it in the Arkiv catalog. The download was easy, the price was right and the music just as I remembered it ... wonderful!" Report Abuse
