    Has made a decent recording of Mahler 3.

  • Jonathan Sutherland says:

    Daniel Raiskin is also Principal Guest Conductor of the Belgrade Philharmonic and with Chief Conductor Gabriel Feltz, has lifted the level of Serbia’s leading orchestra considerably. The cello section is particularly good and principal Nemanja Stanković has established an impressive career as a soloist. Raiskin will be a big asset to Bratislava.

    Daniel Raiskin is also no slouch when it comes to viola
    playing.

    Check out his excellent complete works for viola and piano by Bloch. (This disk also includes the unfinished Sonata for Solo Viola.)
