***** Performance ***** Recording “Feng’s playing is so commanding throughout – the tricky first movement cadenza and third movement scherzo are almost impossibly silky-smooth – that one is left in absolutely no doubt who the real star of the show is. It sets the seal on arguably Feng’s finest release to date, captured in alluringly natural sound.”

“An absolute delight to hear a violinist so at ease with Paganini. So beautifully equipped to deal elegantly with any demand that he makes”.
Andrew McGregor, BBC Radio 3
“The Chinese violinist’s distinctive, honey-sweet timbre suits these two contrasting showcases by virtuoso violinist-composers to perfection: Feng wears their often fearsome technical demands disarmingly lightly, and is fully alive to the operatic qualities of the Paganini in particular, phrasing bel canto melodies and filigree passagework like a nineteenth-century diva at the top of her game.”

“His empathy and sovereign technique guarantee magical moments.”
