Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Braunstein infuses the opening [of the Fantasy] with a good sense of atmosphere and emotion. The Adagio that follows has an appealing melancholy, which Braunstein never over-sentimentalizes. He ensures the Scottish airs have a lovely lilt, and he sweetly captures the flavor of the Scottish countryside. Then he brings a zesty spirit to the central Allegro and a quiet longing to the Andante. While Braunstein and Maestro Ion Marin give us a grander Finale than we often hear, overall this is a relaxed, broadly comfortable reading, full of charm and good will. It’s quite delightful, actually...This makes a most congenial, most welcome addition to the catalogue."

 Violin Pieces less known October 12, 2013 By Joseph Lieber, MD (Great Neck, NY) See All My Reviews "Both the Scottish fantasy and, less so, the Bruch Violin Concerto No. 1 are less often played than some other works such as the Brahms, Sibelius or Beethoven Concerti. Still, these are both dark and lush pieces. These performances are beautifully played and phrased by all players. They may not have the authority of the greatest names but they are certainly given searing and heart felt performances. You cannot go wrong with both the playing and the sonics." Report Abuse
