This is above all a fun record – even more than most collections of violin lollipops a disc for those with a very sweet tooth... Here is a young violinist at the peak of his form enjoying himself from first to last in music undemanding on the ear if not the technique, outrageously showing off in a way that for most will be very endearing. Not that the playing is extrovert all th time... ‘Méditationi’ from Massenet’s Thaïs conveys a rare depth of feeling, making it more than just a lyrical interlude. With full, open recording, this winning young violinist’s many devotees will no doubt have the same response as the enthusiastic Vienna audience. - Gramophone
