Notes and Editorial Reviews

"The great bulk of the Bach recordings that I review are experly played, fit within defined interpretive boundaries, and invite neutral reactions. This one is expertly played, but Tenenbaum’s full-blooded emotional temperament stands apart. An intriguing recording." --David K. Nelson – Fanfare

"Let no one say that present-day artists are less individual than those of yesteryear. Mela Tenenbaum reveals in her performances a vividly original and unusual approach to these familiar works. She is well equipped as a violinist, producing a full, opulent, unforced sound (very finely recorded) and with a clean, accurate left-hand technique." --DD – Gramophone, November 1997
