AllMusic Review by

Pachelbel's "Canon in D" is taken to a new dimension in contemporary music by the principal violinist with the San Francisco Symphony. A gentle, sublime version, nearly 21 minutes long, fills the first track of Velvet Dreams with floating synthesizers and vibraphone, while two selections each from Bach and Vivaldi make up the remainder. Vivaldi's "Largo" from "Winter" of The Four Seasons and Bach's "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring" close with soothing treatments of luxurious relaxation and refined tranquility.
