"Fascinating repertoire of Russian rarities, including a Cesar Cui world premiere recording ... Panfilov provides fine but vital support."
"This disc includes the first recording of Glinka’s own violin version of his viola sonata (1825), of which only two movements survive. It is a beautiful piece, its slow movement beautifully sustained here. Udagawa’s sound is pure and sweet; Glinka’s Mazurka, originally a piano piece, works beautifully, Udagawa’s double-stopping a delight (think Heifetz)."
