…the 36 hours of music in this monumental collection has shown me that Steven Staryk is one of the finest musicians ever to set bow to string. Every disc of this 30-CD set is ample evidence that music lovers all over the world missed the chance to hear and know this extraordinary musician.
The Anthology would be particularly interesting for violin collectors because it is an opportunity to hear the very finest qualities of these (19) great instruments being played here as well as it is humanly possible to play them. I did find myself intoxicated.
