Michael Jameson
ClassicsToday.com, May 2001

"Once again these characterful but still woefully under-represented works impress in a program that, back in the mid-1980s (when both performances first appeared) seemed to denote a key strand of the Naxos agenda--to provide rare or previously un-recorded repertoire at bargain price. Works for violin and orchestra by Rubinstein and Cui, played by Takako Nishizaki (wife of Naxos supremo Klaus Heymann) feature on this reissue, and they sound as fresh and vital as they did back then...here's a well-schooled performance, full of agreeable touches of imagination (the Andante shows Nishizaki's fine-spun tone to particularly good effect) delivered with crisply economical urgency that makes good musical sense even of the work's plainer and less idiomatic passages...A warm welcome back to the catalog for both works!"
