Excerpt from the original review. 8-8-2017.

"Ruhadze has an lightness in his playing with much colour, producing a freewheeling variety in all of Locatelli's compositions. His shaping of the melodies in the many cadenza's is phenomenal. There is a elegant lyricism and a touching vulnerability in all that he plays. Ecstatic yet restrained and superbly controlled  both dynamically and emotionally it is hard to imagine that this can be done better. The accomplished duetting with the wonderful BC players has a synergy  that is amazing throughout. Impeccable it is. Artfully poised!"
