Yuri Bashmet

 "... - Alena is a wonderful violinist. As you know, all my life I've played with so many good and outstanding violinists and Alena, despite her youth, every time impresses me with her incredibly deep penetration into the music, the desire to comprehend the essence of art. 

 For me she continues the best traditions of the Russian school of violin playing. It's amazing, for such a young violinist, how she combines a number of different qualities, such as emotion, sincerity, depth, excellence,etc. We have been collaborating with Alena and I am pleased that each year she grows, she plays better, more interestingly, mature..."
