Dan Davis, July 2015

Throughout the disc, Keylin’s technical facility is allied to real feeling for the music, without which these works can strain interest.

Both conductors and orchestras provide first-rate support, and the engineering captures the performances with admirable realism. At the Naxos price, this is a steal. © 2015 Read complete review

Penguin Guide, January 2009

Misha Keylin here complete his valuable set of the Vieuxtemps Concertos wit ha fine, fully competitive version of the popular No. 5, and he also gives première recording of Nos. 6 and 7. They belong to the last year of the composer’s life and show no diminution of his melodic facility. The G major is in four movements, has a charming Intermezzo siciliano before the sparkling Alleretto Rondo finale. Keylin is a very persuasive advocate, equally at home and accomplished in the A minor Concerto, with its Mélancholie central movement and dashing closing Allegro vivo. He plays a 1715 Stradivarius, and his elegantly warm lyricism shows its timbre off to seductive effect. The recording is very good, too.

Fanfare, March 2004
