(4 out of 5 stars)

"Gidon Kremer released this delicious little CD in 1999 and it has more or less gone unnoticed since then. This is not a 'soundtrack favorites' jumble but a serious approach to some beautiful melodies as interpreted by Kremer and pianist Oleg Maisenberg, with the added presence of the Berlin Symphony Orchestra conducted by the gifted Andrey Boreyko.

Works included are by Charlie Chaplin ("Smile"), Nino Rota, Takemitsu, Shostakovich, Milhaud, Piazzola, Dunayevsky, and Giya Kancheli. The arrangements are well written and the performances honor this genre of music with the same degree of dignity offered the 'serious' works of these composers. It is a bit of lightness but a not fluff and the beautiful playing by Kremer is well worth the listening. Grady Harp, November 05"
