Elgar Violin Concerto in B Minor - CD Review (American Record Guide)

'Shaham’s playing on this album is so supremely gorgeous, better than on any other I’ve heard… The balances are exquisite, revealing details I never knew were there. This album also has the richest, most vibrant, balanced sound you’re likely to get … The flow and form [3rd movement] are complete, and the long cadenza at the end is worth the entire recording… as Shaham turns in the most exquisite, rapturous, technically perfect, and (may I say) exotically beautiful cadenza (with the widest-ranged, most awesome portamento) I’ve ever heard in this music.'
