"...Max Bruch ( 1838-1920) dedicated his No. 1. g minor violin concerto to Hungarian violinist Joseph Joachim, one of the most important violinists of the 19th century, who himself has performed also at Cluj-Napoca with Brahms. Contemporary newspapers called Joachim " violin king" and described his playing "ideal" and "inimitable". All this I consider was worth mentioning, as after a century and a half, Artur Kaganovskiy's playing can be described with the same attributes. His velvet sound, "inimitable “interpretation, the hundreds of shades of his tone as a result of his confident technique and brilliant virtuosity is very unique. I admire his rich inner world - he tells stories, dreams and lives through dramatic moments with his violin and I admire his talent - with which he communicates on the highest level untinged of any disguise . His interpretation is led by love and humbleness what makes it genuine and authentic. In two words, "poetry" and "virtuosity" sums up his interpretation the best. Artur Kaganovskiy thanked the loud ovation with the D minor Sarabande by J.S.Bach…"

“During the many years that I have held conducting positions with the Detroit Symphony, Phoenix Symphony, Savannah Symphony and now for 12 years as Artistic Director and Conductor of the Kiev Philharmonic, as well as extensive international guest conducting, I have had the privilege of performing with many, if not, most of the world’s great violinists-Isaac Stern, Itzhak Perlman, Pinchas Zukerman, Franco Gulli, to name but a few. Quite simply, I consider Artur Kaganovskiy among the finest violinists I have ever heard. While, of course, he has impeccable technique and intonation, far more importantly, he has the individual artistry which sets him far apart from the norm of technically proficient violinists”.

"...The Mozart Violin Concerto, which Artur Kaganovskiy performed, got a most exciting, yet properly measured, performance. Its performance was positively joyous! Mr. Kaganovskiy should have a major career; and Spectrum Symphony Orchestra should make its way on to the musical map."

"Your performance has been undoubtedly breathtaking.
As it is to be said of all his compositions, Elgar's violin concerto has a certain degree of melancholy and introspective dreary which I believe you have drawn with perfect eloquence.
I felt no less than a great relief to acknowledge that the musicianship you presented me with is possible to exist in a concert hall of my participation. And to that I am very thankful"

"Finalizado el descanso, y como si se tratara de un espejo, la segunda parte dio inicio con sendas obras para violín. De hecho, las dos que llevaron al encargo del Concierto para Violín y Orquesta por parte de Carl St. Clair. Si el joven violinista Artur Kaganovskiyalcanzó la perfección en El bosque (The Gravel Road), en Resistencia (Nothing Is Impossible) logró lo sublime, con su Guarneri de 1730 cálidamente arropado por el resto de la orquesta."
