Notes and Editorial Reviews

Rudy is a powerful virtuoso with a muscular technique and an aversion to sentimentality and his performances here nail all the notes in these Romantic warhorses albeit perhaps not all the emotion. Jansons is a clear-eyed but sympathetic accompanist who elicits brilliant, strong, and supple performances from the St. Petersburg Philharmonic that fit Rudy's interpretations like new spandex.
