Reviews :

« This is above all a fun record – even more than most collections of violin lollipops a disc for those with a very sweet tooth... Here is a young violinist at the peak of his form enjoying himself from first to last in music undemanding on the ear if not the technique, outrageously showing off in a way that for most will be very endearing. Not that the playing is extrovert all th time... ‘Méditationi’ from Massenet’s Thaïs conveys a rare depth of feeling, making it more than just a lyrical interlude. With full, open recording, this winning young violinist’s many devotees will no doubt have the same response as the enthusiastic Vienna audience. » - Gramophone

"He's supported by a pianist and the 11 violins of Virtuosi, who back him in this selection of encore pieces whose arrangements are sometimes clever, sometimes corny. At times, it all gets a bit much (innocent bystanders can be smothered in vibrato); at other times listeners who suspend their critical faculties can just enjoy it. Vengerov certainly seems to and so does the Viennese audience." — Amazon.com

"Vengerov continues his well-earned reputation for violin wizardry as he sets off fireworks in the more festive and volatile pieces (Novácek's Perpetuum Mobile, Monti's Csárdás), and displays a warm, lush lyricism for the gentler items, such as Rachmaninov's Vocalise, played as a duo at the start of the program. The live recording was made in Vienna's Musikvereinsaal, a location that is considerably more reverberant than was probably necessary for such a small ensemble. But given Vengerov's popularity, a smaller space, however suitable for recording, would not have accommodated so large a crowd. This collection holds appeal for classical specialists and novices alike, and especially for aficionados of fine violin playing." - Victor Carr Jr., ClassicsToday.com
