"Elman still plays with charm and elegance... In this batch of pieces, where the encore wags the concert, so to speak, Elman and Seiger combine war-horses and novelties in captivating manner. I was charmed by the exotic From San Domingo, by Arthur Benjamin, with its echoes of guitars and popular songs. Charles Miller's Cuba-naise... (its) vivacious rhythms and sonorous middle section are most appealing. Perhaps the item that most lis-teners will fall for is Elman's arrangement of the so-called Canto Amoroso by Sammartini, an encore which Elman has made peculiarly his own." — Gramophone
