Classical Music, September 2019

BEETHOVEN, L. van / MENDELSSOHN, Felix: Violin Concertos (Znaider, Chailly) (NTSC) ACC-20345
BEETHOVEN, L. van / MENDELSSOHN, Felix: Violin Concertos (Znaider, Chailly) (Blu-ray, Full-HD) ACC-10345

Znaider’s sweet, richly-coloured tone and painstaking commitment to these two much-played works shines through every bar, and with gorgeous, burnished accompaniment from the Gewandhaus players, this comfortably eclipses his earlier Israeli CD recording (RCA). Beautifully filmed and recorded at two sets of concerts, each encored with a tantalising Bach sarabande, this is as classy as it is inspiring. © 2019 Classical Music

Fresh and vivid performances of both the Beethoven and the Mendelssohn Concertos. © 2016 Pizzicato



Terry Robbins
The WholeNote, August 2016

The performances are quite outstanding, with Znaider in great form and drawing a wonderful sound from the Stradivarius violin once played by Fritz Kreisler; it’s a magnificent instrument, and perfectly suited to Znaider’s playing. © 2016 The WholeNote Read complete review

My Classical Notes, March 2016

Mr. Znaider has total control of his instrument. His tone is warm and very pleasing. His technique is tasteful, and he avoids unattractive slides to higher positions. He is capable of achieving wonderful pianissimos, and expressive Fortes. © 2016 My Classical Notes Read complete review
