Notes and Editorial Reviews

One of today’s most iconic violinists, Itzhak Perlman is renowned for his dazzling virtuoso performances, and treasured for his outstanding artistry and the sheer joy he communicates in his music-making. This collection features Perlman in staples of the violin concerto repertoire – including warm and expressive Bach and a thrilling live Beethoven Violin Concerto that was praised by Gramophone for its ‘flair and individuality’ – as well as some of the fiendishly difficult showpieces that bring his unique technical bravura to the fore.
