"A virtuoso tour de force performance from Schwarz."

"Schwarz's charismatic playing is the glue that holds such a disparate program together and apart from glorious tone and impeccable technique, it is the dynamism of his recreations of these new pieces that sets this disc apart."
-Music Web International

"Excellent violinist... remarkable technical skills and interpretive abilities"
-American Record Guide

"[Schwarz's] nearly ten-minute solo performance dazzles-calling it a tour de force is in no way excessive."
