Review By Fono Forum,

"Keylin...stands up to all challenges of the concertos. He shows himself as a brilliant virtuoso with clear articulation and a powerful tone.... The virtuosity and musicality always kept each other in balance."

Review By Scherzo,

"Keylin...posses a very concentrated and colorful sound, which he shows-off especially in the brilliant Rondo that closes the 2nd concerto."

Review By Classic CD,

"Keylin is an assured and impressive soloist. Every fiddle-fancier will want to savour this [CD]."

Review By In Tune,

"Still in his 20s, Russian-born Misha Keylin takes on two of the Paganini-like dragons of the violin repertoire in a most impressive way: Vieuxtemps' neglected Second and Third Concertos. Keylin's playing leaves nothing to chance. Dulcet in tone, elegant in phrasing and superbly secure of intonation, his playing is a match for that of the youthful Itzhak Perlman. One hopes Keylin will record a full Vieuxtemps Concerto cycle...No violinist has felt up to the task...but Keylin obviously has what it takes."

Review By Diapason,January 2009

Here is a young artist who takes the shrewd gamble of acquainting us with little known repertory. The gamble was successful for this virtuoso...who proves his talent throughout. Panache and bravura animate playing that is clearly articulated, lean, fluid and inspired. With luminescent sound, a sense of theatre (indispensable for delivering the romantic flavor of a repertory strongly influenced by Paganini), and a persistent commitment, Misha Keylin offers a reading that is at once brilliant, and refined...he displays ardor, panache and poetry with style and a seductive authenticity. We discover both the repertory and its interpreter(s).

Review By Penguin Guide,January 2009

Nos. 2 and 3 are by no means inferior to the better known Nos. 4 and 5.Nos. 4 and 5. They are full of good tunes, both slow movements are warmly touching, and the finales have lyrical as well as historic appeal. Misha Keylin gives highly persuasive performances that constantly tickle the ear in their subtly of bowing and colour, easy rubato works (and especially the Third, with its throbbing drama) are arresting, and the orchestral playing, somewhat leonine in timbre, is excellent. So too is the recording, made in the Janácek Concert Hall, Ostrava.
