Notes and Editorial Reviews

This is one of the few recordings in which absolutely everything works in triumphant harmony. The Brahms Concerto (strangely, of the two performances, the one that haunts the memory) ranks among the very best; the Beethoven, honesty compels me to affirm, is the very best: a marvelous conception realized by a virtuosic soloist at the top of his form and an orchestra and conductor inspired by the greatness of the work and its interpreter. I'm well aware that, having read the last sentence, some readers are reaching for pen and paper to write an indignant defense of one favorite (Heifetz, Huberman, Szigeti, Kreisler, and Menuhin come to mind) or another. But Rosand's Beethoven has little in common with any of those, and in that difference lies Read more its strength. It's one for the ages.

--Robert Maxham, Fanfare Magazine, 1999.
