Notes and Editorial Reviews

I won't waste space in eulogizing about the ravishing Perlman tone; suffice to say that his seemingly endless flow of full-blooded lyricism fits Brahms's writing like a kid glove... [B]oth artists play with a depth of identification with the idiom that makes the performances both distinctive and authoritative.

-- James Methuen-Campbell, Gramophone [2/1987, reviewing EMI 47403]
