It's a real puzzle why a great violinist like Aaron Rosand has never had the major career he deserves. His misfortune benefits bargain hunters, as this wonderful collection of mostly obscure Romantic violin showpieces winds up on a super-bargain label. If this kind of music attracts your fancy, you will seldom, if ever, hear it played with more passion and flair, or better command of the instrument, than Rosand offers. The orchestra is distinctly second-rate, but it doesn't matter much in pieces where the focus is so firmly on the soloist. There's a lot of fun and some surprisingly good music (like the Joachim) in this set. --Leslie Gerber

Rosand is a sublime artist!

"First at all , the warmthness , the musicality and the virtuosism emanated from the soul of this reinassance man establishes a sutil difference with the majority of the violinists in the actual times .
Rosand is superb . And take in mind his repertoire includes several unknown pieces of the musical literature.
He does not seem to have any problem with that , and the works recorded here proves this statement . Joachim and Hubay violin concerts are not precisely the battlehorses in the most of stages around the world .
He made the world premiere recording of the Sibelius Humoresques for violin in the early sixties and the Rimsky Korsakov or Arensky violin concerts .
I had the great honor of appreciate his craft twice in Caracas in 1978 with the Sibelius violin concerto and in 1980 February with the PAganini violin concerto No. 1 .
He is a charming human being , and gave us two unforgettable encores playing Bach partita No. 2 and a Paganini Capriccio No. 17 .
Try to get as soon as possible this fundamental issue who will let you know much more about this legendary violinist and best person ."

"The virtuoso playing in this CD is breathtaking. Somehow, while flying through amazingly difficult passages, seemingly effortlessly, Mr. Rosand is able to bring out such warmth and beauty in the music that it makes you wonder if you ever really heard it before."
