“The Violin Concerto was interpreted masterfully and I was even more enthusiastic about the “filler” of this recording: Beethoven’s Septet…played with such empathy as if he has not done anything else in his life”
Fono Forum, Germany
“Kavakos has succeeded in a great recording of Beethoven’s Violin Concerto, which enables the listener to listen to this music in a completely new way”
Rondo Music Magazine
“Kavakos delivers a magnificent new recording of the composer’s only violin concerto, as well as a second disc of his Septet in E flat major and Variations on Folk Song (Op. 105 and 107)”
“Kavakos’ beautifully shaped phrases dovetail with those of the orchestra with a melodious and lyrical tone. Textures are clear and distinguishable, Sony’s engineering allows clarity with beautifully balanced woodwind”
The Classical Review, UK
“With his sweet, powerful tone and technical precision, Kavakos treats the performance as conversation rather than combat, decorating and accompanying as much as leading the musical argument”
“We sometimes forget top performing artists, who do excellent work for decades. The Athenian violinist Leonidas Kavakos is one of them. If one want to tell about his experience one just needs to listen to his latest album”
