Penguin Guide, January 2009

The Russian cellist, Alexander Rudin, proves a powerful interpreter of these two concertante works. Rudin can match and even outshine most other rivals, not least in the beauty of his half-tones, as in the slow movements of both works. He and the conductor, Theodore Kuchar, inspire the Ukraine Orchestra to play with similar incisiveness, helped by vivid, immediate sound. The two charming Pushkin-based Waltzes make an attractive fill-up, winningly pointed.
