Notes and Editorial Reviews

Reference to Kreisler calls to mind a very young violinist of surprisingly mature musical insight, commanding technique, and powerful, rich tone. Alexander Sitkovetsky isn't simply a debutante from whom great things can be anticipated: He has already produced a glowing masterpiece in his program of short Russian works.

-- Robert Maxham, FANFARE [Want List, 2001]
