“…a formidable violinist of full tone and strong personality.”
“To regard him simply as a huge talent is not enough ; there is an element of pure genius in this young man.”
“Kadesha has something of the appearance of a mad professor, and the energetic playing style of a Paganini.”
“A very, very rare talent…”
