What about this, Mr. Paganini? - Saschko Gawriloff        (2 of 3 found this review helpful)
  Review by akltam December 26, 2004

When I picked up this disk, I was fascinated by the content in it. Saschko played the same song on 7 different violins by vairous makers(Amati, Guadagini, Horvath, A. Guarneri .....).

  Review by Dan Popp December 24, 2004

Well, I thought I knew what Rachmaninov sounded like, and I thought I knew what liturgical choral music sounded like, but this disc has challenged those assumptions, and unfortunately I don't mean that as a compliment. There is a lot of vibrato in the voices at all times, giving the disc (to me) a ... more
