"These works are like rare stones. You have to find them but once found they shine brilliantly."
"This is superb follow-up to Joanna Kurkowicz' first disc of the Violin Concertos by Grazyna Bacewicz... played with fire and passion... "
---BBC MUSIC: ***** Performance ***** Sound
"Joanna Kurkowicz proves the ideal exponent of these impassioned scores. She propels the music's many passages of vivacious brilliance with virtuoso elan, retaining absolute tonal focus and immaculate coordination in even the most challenging of sequences."
