 Misha Keylin’s recordings of Vieuxtemps’s music have received critical acclaim worldwide
 
‘Every installment in Keylin’s survey of Vieuxtemps is absolutely first-rate… He knows how to milk each passage for drama; his bowing is supple, his vibrato appropriately varied, his intonation pure, his attacks firm and confident… This is the kind of rousing musicmaking that quite confounds the critic, who must sit there scribbling on his pad when all he really wants to do is throw it away and groove to the beat.’

Winner of numerous international competitions, the Russian-born and US-raised violinist is a former student of Juilliard grand dame Dorothy DeLay. He already has recorded Vieuxtemps’ complete violin concertos (seven in number) on a critically acclaimed and commercially successful 1999 three-CD set for the Naxos label. He surmounts the technical hurdles of the works recorded here with incredible ease—his facility is unlimited, his intonation flawless.’ – Strings Magazine
