 Beautiful disc at a bargain price March 30, 2012 By R. Aylward (Sun City West, AZ) See All My Reviews "This is the best performance of this concerto I have ever heard, and the sound quality is wonderful. It was originally released as one of the legendary "RCA Plum Victrola LPs, which were fully equal to the famous Living Stereo Shaded Dogs. Go for it!! I only wish RCA would release this on SACD. No matter - just go for it!" Report Abuse
