Let's take a look at the CD for a moment. Notice that the jewel case is unusual in its design; characteristically, SACDs are packaged this way. The careless buyer would assume that he/she is getting a high grade surround sound SACD or a hybrid SACD at least. This is none of the sort. Instead the corporate big shots at Decca Universal and Deutsche Grammophon have "supersized" their roster of hyped performers. And yes, that leaves little room for some smaller, lesser known labels such as Centaur, Brilliant, Zig Zag, Conoisseur Society, Bridge and others to promote their recording artists. Shame on Decca and DGG for doing so. From now on I will boycott against DGG and Decca recordings. I do hope that such reputable performers who I enjoy such as Anne-Sophie Mutter and Hilary Hahn will move to the smaller labels.

A review on the packaging cited Vadim Repin as the greatest living violinist. I completely agree after hearing this recording! His tone is sooo warm and very individual. Vadim effortlessly mixes technique with beautiful expression. One can tell, when he plays, that this is what he loves. I especially like his joyful rendition of the third movement of the violin concerto. It makes me want to smile! I look forward to his next recordings!
