CITY PULSE (Lansing, MI) (September 17, 2014)

“Yevgeny Kutik infused every note, no matter how fleeting, with its own color and character, elevating Bruch’s music [Concerto #1] from merely pleasing to unforgettable. From the start, it seemed to dawn on everyone in the hall that a master was at work. Many listeners leaned forward, mesmerized by the liquid, mercurial strands of melody that spiraled from his fiddle. Kutik had a way of working the virtuoso bits unto the grain of the music, like patterns on birch bark, burnishing his tone with breathtaking beauty. Far from showing off, he seemed to float above himself, monitoring every move, deflecting attention from the effort required to achieve this miracle of sound.”
