Notes and Editorial Reviews

Violinist Liza Ferschtman plays on this CD with the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra and Swiss conductor Mario Venzago. Her name is becoming more and more well known in the international music scene, and this new recording of the Dvorák’s Violin Concerto shows that she is a world-class musician we will be hearing even more of in the future!

"...As in her Beethoven performance, Liza Ferschtman is scrupulous in observing Dvorak's written instructions, regardless of accumulated performance practices. Both she and Venzago manage to imbue the frequent changes in pace and melodic content of the first movement with a sense of natural flow which is quite delightful." - SA-CD.net
