"...This generously filled release will be a must for all Rózsa enthusiasts. Others with a liking for well crafted and attractive music will also find much to enjoy here. I cannot wait too long for the forthcoming volumes."

“... on this spacious new recording I was particularly impressed by the wide landscapes of the slow movement [Violin Concerto] and the dream-like episode in the middle of the finale. Comparing Jennifer Pike’s performance with the original Heifetz recording, hers appears cooler and more contemplative. Though she plays the brilliant passages extremely well, she lacks something of Heifetz’s manic energy and his ability to make of each movement a single passionate utterance. There’s much to be said for this calmer performance, highlighting the beauty of Rozsa’s intricate interplay between violin and orchestra.”
Duncan Druce – Gramophone magazine – January 2013
**** - Excellent Album

Julian Haylock – BBC Music magazine – Christmas 2012
"...Excellent notes by Andrew Knowles provide a helpful guide to all three works; and the sound is spacious and rich. This is a most attractive recording - best of all in the Violin Concerto - that deserves to be snapped up by any admirer of Rózsa’a music."
