Comments:Simon Lapointe said:

A young Canadian, James Ehnes provides us with a great interpretation of a cornerstone of the repertoire for solo violin. His tone is rich but controlled, giving the best of both romantic and scholar worlds. That balance is very well achieved, and provides us a extraordinary good version for the new millenium.
