“The beauty of the Weinberg violin concerto was magnified by the excellent performance. The soloist David Radzynski, the concertmaster of the orchestra, combined a sparkly sound, elegant punctuation, restraint and intense emotional expression. The fast movements were full of energy, the inner movements — suspense and lyricism” Amir Mendel, Haaretz
