Notes and Editorial Reviews

Perlman sees this concerto in the context of Romanticism, and plays it with astounding virtuosity: everything is covered, everything in tune. This is the violinist at his most commanding, performing in a way that will leave future generations agog. Ozawa and the Boston Symphony provide solid support. Dating from 1979, this was one of the finest recordings DG made in Boston, and the impact, clarity, and close perspective on Perlman have been retained in the remastering for CD. The coupling is an excellent account of the Stravinsky. – Ted Libbey, author of The NPR Guide to Building a Classical CD Collection Perlman sees this concerto in the context of Romanticism, and plays it with astounding virtuosity: everything is covered, everything in tune.
