"The Scottish Fantasy, with its wealth of traditional melodies, ripely presented, is firmly based in the repertory; most of Bruch’s other concertante works for violin are largely unknown. Here is one of the most ambitious, the Serenade, dating from 1900, 20 years after the Fantasy. Its breadth and weight belies its lightweight title. It is a warm and fluent work in Bruch’s high-Romantic style and built on clearly defined themes which lack only the last degree of memorability of the Fantasy...Maxim Fedotov gives a warm, thrusting performance of both it and the Fantasy...his bravura playing, helped by full-blooded accompaniment from DmitryRead more Yablonsky and the Russian Philharmonic, makes the results consistently compelling."
- Edward Greenfield, GRAMOPHONE
"Fedotov’s playing is both passionately fiery and sweet in tone...For those wishing to acquaint themselves with beautiful music, familiar and unfamiliar, this disc is more than value for money."
