Review By Penguin Guide,January 2009

Misha Keylin couples the unfamiliar First with the much better-known D minor Concerto, which we are told he plays on a famous Stradivarius violin. Certainly its Andante religioso brings a generous-toned romanticism. But the solo timbre in the E major work is sweet and full, and he plays the dazzling lightweight finale with charm as well as sparkle. This is excellent coupling, very well recorded, and both accompanying groups, Czech and Dutch respectively, are very supportive indeed.
