Penguin Guide, January 2009

Antoni Wit handles the long opening ritornello of the F sharp minor Concerto most impressively, and Marat Bisengaliev proves a natural, understanding soloist in both concertos, playing slow movements with warmly romantic feeling and sparkling with brilliance in the display passages and especially in the finales. The Faust Variations make a substantial (19 minute) and attractively tuneful bonus. Marat Bisengaliev has a fairly small, but sweet and beautifully focused tone; he is balanced naturally in relation to the orchestra, and both are very well recorded in the Polish Radio Concerto Hall, which has an attractively warm acoustic.


"this can be recommended regardless of price....these are performances of bravura excitement, warm, flowing tone, and awesome ease of execution...This Wieniawski release is an incredible bargain"
