Notes and Editorial Reviews

Perlman's performance of the Mendelssohn Concerto is sheer delight. He plays with the most seductive quality of tone, and invests the first movement in particular with the most delicately expressed feeling. The slow movement is beautifully serene, the finale gossamer-light, and with Haitink in good support and an excellent recording this version is one of the best now available.

-- Gramophone [5/1989]
