Leonid Gorokhov press reviews

Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Yehudi Menuhin

Tchaikovsky Rococo Variations

“...the interpretation of Tchaikovsky’s Rococo Variations marked the highlight of the evening. This was mainly due to the Russian cellist, Leonid Gorokhov, who seized the various temperaments of the piece with a soft but powerful tone, and formed sensual, beautiful lines. He performed the nearly unplayable virtuoso passages with such dancing lightness. It was as though they were pretty little etudes for a warm-up. Fantastic...”

Berliner Zeitung
  English Symphony Orchestra conducted by Yehudi Menuhin

Schumann Cello Concerto

“The discovery of the evening however remains the 27 year old cellist Leonid Gorokhov...his technical performance, his vibrating intonation and the velvet gloss of his bowing reminds one of the tone of the young Menuhin.”

Neue Ruhrzeitung
  “Russian-born London-based cellist Leonid Gorokhov, the winner of several major competitions while still in his teens, has a sound that matches his personality – big, warm and generous.”

Dvorak Cello Concerto

“...Technically immaculate, dramatically virtuosic, soulful in phrasing and burningly expressive in the more poetical sections of the piece. With this Dvorak and also with the Bach encore Gorokhov secures a place amongst the foremost cellists of his generation.”
