Acclaim for Tchaikovsky & Conus: Violin Concertos (David Garrett)

"...it's almost a shock to hear [Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto] played with such poetic subtlety... There is power and brilliance when needed, but Pletnev is also a marvelously discreet accompanist, highlighting a tiny phrase here, a touch of color there, but never setting himself up in competition to Garrett. As for Garrett himself - well, there's plenty to admire technically, but it's refreshing to hear a performance that charms the listener into the music rather than grabbing him or her by the lapels. "

BBC Music Magazine (March 2002)

"This is emotive Tchaikovsky playing, thoughtful but conversational... an agile and personable reading."

Gramophone (February 2002)
