Notes and Editorial Reviews



A gorgeously refined Russian rendering of familiar repertoire

If, as Edward Seckerson suggests in his review, these works are widely regarded as 'pop classics', this disc will make a refreshing change. Yuri Bashmet, consummate artist that he is, takes them seriously. He and his Moscow Soloists lavish interpretative care on these performances and the results are both beautiful and probing. Something of a gem.

-- Gramophone [1/2009]
