“Jiří Bělohlávek conducts with fiery commitment, and there's super-sensuous playing from the Prague Philharmonia. Isabelle Faust is the expressive soloist in the Second Violin Concerto, while Cédric Tiberghien plays Toccata e Due Canzoni with bags of charm.” - Tim Ashley, June 13, 2008, The Guardian
“The present recording is a near-ideal interpretation of the work. From her very first entry, Isabelle Faust shows a strong feeling for the work’s dramatic ebb and flow, and in the supremely beautiful slow movement achieves heights of eloquence.(…) As in the Concerto, Bělohlávek produces readings that have an exemplary lyricism, reaching a high point in the first Canzona. Excellently recorded, this is an issue to treasure.” - Jan Smaczny, BBC Music Magazine, July 2008
“music and performance spotlight the splendid engineering that is an unobtrusive delight of this excellent disc.
Recommended.” - Gramophone Classical Music Guide, 2010
