An exclusive RCA Red Seal recording artist, Szeps-Znaider’s latest recording of the Beethoven and Mendelssohn Violin Concerti with the Israel Philharmonic under Zubin Mehta has been greeted with critical acclaim and was heralded in Grammophone as:

high calibre artistry...tellingly exemplified by Mendelssohn’s first movement where the rise and fall of the phrasing, its yielding plasticity realises every vestige of lyricism inherent in the music.”
