Reviews

‘Previn, a distinguished film composer himself, leads aptly vivid performances of all four suites … The London Symphony plays with all of the panache that the music requires’ ClassicsToday

‘Shaham gives a performance of effortless virtuosity and strong profile … Shaham and Previn together consistently bring out the [Violin Concerto’s] sensuous warmth without making the result soupy’ Penguin Guide to DVDs
