I found the recording well done although I have no other work of this type to base my evaluation. I liked the melody.

They used to say: an egg is "an oeuf". Well, I say that this recording is enough to understand the quality of these musicians and the inteligence of this work of them. Now seriously: congratulations to "Vika", once more, for this briliant and wonderfull idea.

Gene Herron said:

The work on violin concertos was nice, with good feeling and articulation. The solo work on concerto in G minor was good, with feeling. The double concerto was well done, the violin part was audible enough to hear well. Adding the bassoon to the double concerto was a nice touch, it gave the piece a fuller double reed feel.
