5.0 out of 5 stars Superb! 17 Nov 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The sensibility and the talent involved in these performances make the word title seem rather cold to describe it. The choice of those 'songs' is also very aimed, and it is the work that you cannot miss if you love violin. Not the kind of music to hear as a background for any activity, it requires all your attention!

5.0 out of 5 stars A charming CD of small violin pieces. 19 July 2000
By Christopher Urrutia - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Although Vengerov has had his up's and down's, this CD is truely a triumph for him. Vengerov's playing is in top form and he really does each piece justice. The best thing about this CD is the pieces Vengerov picked to record. This is the perfect CD of charming violin miniatures. I haven't yet found a better CD of these sorts of pieces. I especially like the Caprice Basque by Sarasate and the variations by Paganini. But all the songs are very captivating. If you're looking for a good CD of "itsy bitsies", as Heifetz called them, this is it. It's a great gift for someone who isn't really into classical music or for someone who is too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent grouping of small violin pieces 14 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The pieces on this cd are all of the most delightful quality. Vengerov plays them all with beautiful execution and interpretation. One of my favorite cd's. I've yet to find another violin cd that groups together such wonderful little pieces in such a good way!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic ! 31 Mar 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Vengerov has no limit to his technique.beautiful tone,excellent intonation,smart interpretation,and thrilling virtuosity, hardly describe this cd.Itamar Golan also does a very good job as an accompanist,and one cannot make any objections to his level of music making.A Brilliant recording made by an unforgetable artist!

3.0 out of 5 stars he didn't read the music very carefully... 23 Sep 2002
By Martin Shultz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
A lot of this CD is very impressive- Vengerov clearly has his technique under control, and the Paganini is very well-executed, making it sound easy.
I feel that he's pretty far off the mark with the Messiaen, though. He must not have spent very much time learning this piece, since both the Theme (of the "Theme et variations) and the final section of the piece are played at exactly twice the printed tempo! This completely changes the character of the piece to something that's very different from the meditative quality that the correct tempo markings imply. There are also a few wrong notes- small details, but it does make a difference, considering the emphasis Messiaen placed on harmony. There's a very good Naxos recording of this piece (with the Amici ensemble, Scott St. John, violin) that's worth hearing.
