 TOO BAD THE CD IS NOT AVAILABLE... November 4, 2014 By Zita Carno (Tampa, FL) See All My Reviews "I have always wondered about soloists with orchestra and their different temperaments, whether they like the concerto or not. Case in point: Jascha Heifetz hated the Brahms concerto, and when he was forced to record it (contractual obligations) he did so under protest. And why did he hate that concerto so? The second movement. It has the most gorgeous main theme, something violinists would give their eyeteeth for---and who got it? The first oboe. So Heifetz had a cow, and a monster it was. Later on he did record it, but he never forgave Brahms. Now we turn to something more recent: Dvorak's A minor violin concerto. I heard it a couple of days ago on my favorite Classical Masterpieces TV channel, and a masterpiece it was. Midori---who didn't have too much luck with the Hindemith concerto---spread her wings, took to the sky, and SOARED. This was a performance for the ages; she took this not-played-often-enough concerto and made the most of it in every respect, and Zubin Mehta and the N.Y. Phil partnered her brilliantly, never overpowering. This was a concerto for violin and orchestra, not violin versus orchestra (we have enough of that with the infamous P.D.Q. Bach on record)---beautifully played by all concerned, and I was horrified to learn that the CD is not to be had. And I don't have the equipment for MP3s. But I understand that the disc is available on another form, a mini, and I would love to know how to get that one so I can play it on my machine---I absolutely love this performance. Anyhoo, Midori and Mehta have done themselves very, very proud indeed." Report Abuse
