Reviews

‘Belkin’s commanding and dashing performances earn a strong recommendation’ Fanfare

‘A real treat for violin fans … Belkin’s technique is beyond reproach, with many passages that stun for their sheer audacity as well as accuracy’ ClassicsToday.com

‘Belkin bestows on this music the same sterling musicianship you would expect of him when playing one of the great concertos, especially in the engaging, brightly-lit first movement and the finale’s driving presto’ ClassicsToday.com
