Notes and Editorial Reviews

Cho-Liang Lin; Chicago Symphony Orchestra/Leonard Slatkin. CBS MK 42315 [with Scottish Fantasy; also available with Mendelssohn: Concerto in E minor, and various encore pieces (CBS MDK 44902)] (recorded 1986). Lin’s is a straightforward, expressive reading of the concerto, distinguished by extraordinarily beautiful playing. Bruch was a melodist of the first rank, and the soloist emphasizes that aspect of the music in his warmly phrased account. Leonard Slatkin and the Chicago Symphony provide outstanding support, and the performance is captured in a recording of ideal depth and spaciousness. Two versions of the account are now available; the choice for most buyers is the mid-price recoupling that pairs the Bruch with Mendelssohn’s Concerto Read more in E minor and encore pieces by Kreisler and Sarasate. – Ted Libbey, author of The NPR Guide to Building a Classical CD Collection.

 Lin presents a moving rendition of the Scottish F December 23, 2012 By John Tiedeman (BATON ROUGE, LA) See All My Reviews "I only heard the Scottish Fantasy because it was the only part broadcast, and I had it sent directly to my sister in another city so haven't heard the rest at all. The Scottish Fantasy moved me as it usually does, and this was a technically perfect performance, so I thought it was a good bet. It arrived promptly, which was not the case the last time I sent her a CD, so I am quite satisfied with this purchase." Report Abuse
