Mark Koldys
American Record Guide, November 2010

the Russian ensemble does first-rate work, here and in the Gershwin.

...the two works have something to say to each other. Gershwin and Bernstein aren’t programmed together much, and they should be; Bernstein was in a way Gershwin’s successor, and he offered a model for connecting American vernacular and concert traditions at a time when such connections were under attack from an entrenched modernist cabal. The contrast of the plucky jazz piano with the ponderous orchestra in the Bernstein comes out after hearing Gershwin in a way that it doesn’t otherwise, and for this, along with excellent sound and engaging notes (in English only), the album merits recommendation.
