In an effort to promote the coverage of live violin performance, Violinist.com each week presents links to reviews of notable concerts and recitals around the world. This Week in Reviews, Op. 164 includes several Crossover Media Artists including:

Nicola Benedetti performed the Beethoven with the Worthing Symphony Orchestra. About the concert, the Worthing Herald noted: "No bombast, no over-screwed tension, no showing-off, no probing rubato, no contrived drama. Just the concentration and focus that meant no lapses into areas of sheer leisure, luxuriating, beautification, or indulgent introspection."

Gil Shaham performed the Korngold with the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra and the St. Louis Post-Dispatch wrote: "(The Korngold) makes high demands of its soloist, both technical and interpretive; Shaham aced them all, with a bravura performance that brought down the house."

James Ehnes performed the Beethoven with the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra. The Democrat & Chronicle commented: "Often bird-like, happy and intense, Ehnes' interpretation of this work is powerful and precise, from gritty double stops and arpeggios to delightful trills." and the Roches

Sarah Chang performed the Dvorák with the Prague Philharmonia and the Palm Beach Daily News said: "Although Chang demonstrated a constant elegance and lyricism, it seemed as though she was not getting any help from the hall. Her sound struggled to break out of the orchestra at times, and not for lack of trying."
