Jess B

The Ave Maria in particular is a crowd-pleaser, but don't overlook the rest; this album is full of mature works which will reward an attentive ear!
This album belongs in the library of serious music-lovers because many of these works are lesser-known and deserve to be heard!
The final track is the longest work and a glorious end to the album;
each time a new peak rises in this piece the listener may appreciate how everything comes to fruition in quality music.
Mr Lefkowitz delivers his interpretations with the perfect contrast of rich tone grounded in passionate conviction, against some truly "translucent and transcendent" moments of pure crystalline sound!
This album is a showcase of how finely-honed Mischa Lefkowitz's skills have become after a life-long devotion to his craft.
