"This lovely recital by Russian-born Eugene Levinson is one of a series by principal players from the New York Philharmonic. Opening with an excellent new piece Dance of Life by Iranian émigré Behzad Ranjbaran....It is the depth of feeling Levinson brings to these performances which makes this disc so special. He eschews any overt display of emotion and never seems tempted to flaunt his instrumental athleticism. His dark brown tone is rich and mellow, his intonation impecible and his virtuosity effortless....first class production." The Double Bassist
