Notes and Editorial Reviews

Accardo brings to these performances all his formidable virtuosity and artistry, displaying superb technique, pure intonation and an ever present sense of style and good taste. In this he is well matched by the LPO under Charles Dutoit... [A]nyone seeking Paganini's most popular two concertos will doubtless be well satisfied with this well-filled DG Compact Disc.

-- Gramophone [2/1987]
