5.0 out of 5 stars Undiscovered gem! 3 May 2008
By Dave - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a must have recording of all three works on this disc. I have had the pleasure of playing chamber music with Mr. Kaler and it was immediately obvious what an exceptional instrumentalist and musician he his. Other than that, I have no other conflict of interest in writing this review.

His Glazunov is spectacular and rivaled only by Heifetz in terms of technical brillance, while at the time being extraordinarily musical and expressive. The Dvorak selections are magnificently played. For myself, I slightly prefer the Suk recordings, especially of the Romanza, just as a matter of personal taste, which tend to emphasize more the lyrical and expressive aspects of these pieces, but there is much warmth and virtuosic sparkle here, as required, to more than amply satisfy.

The quality of the recording is WELL above average in terms of tonality and sound staging. Occasionally, the orchestral playing swamps the soloist, but it is in places where it is not truly objectionable on a musical basis, and does not detract from the overall impact of the performances. Generally, the balance between orchestra and soloist is exemplary.

It is unfortunate that a musician of this stature has not been able to break into the first tier of touring artists on the US concert stage, with appropriate name recognition, and it is clear that there is far more involved in that aspect than merely possessing top flight artistic and instrumental qualifications. Please do not be dissuaded by the bargain price for this CD, for it is in no way "bargain basement" in overall quality, In fact, I would say just exactly the opposite of same.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Violinist 19 July 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com

Ilya Kaler is simply a superb artist. Check out any of his recordings available on Naxos. This one is a particular favorite of mine. Possibly the best versions available of Dvorak's Violin Concerto and the Romance, and at a bargain price to boot.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Romantic Period Violin Concertos 10 Feb 2009
By CJV - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Decided to pickup this CD after hearing Dvorak's VC on the Naxos-Site. I had nothing by Kaler, actually knew nothing about him, but after hearing his rendition of Dvorak, I was impressed. The Dvorak VC is a dynamic piece, it has a powerful beginning and great melody for the first movement. The second mvt., like Mendelssohn's, is linked to the first and glides along with an emotional moving lyric. The final movement is joyous and the soloing is playful. The Glazunov VC is a nice complimentary piece to Dvorak's and the Romance is an excellent piece to round out the CD. Last note about Kaler, he is truly an underrated violinist. NAXOS is really good about finding great young talent for their recordings.
