Notes and Editorial Reviews

If you're looking for...self-confident mastery in the concertos, be advised of Sony's reissue...of the authentic five and some shorter works executed with splendid panache and stylistic savvy by Isaac Stern. The orchestras are conducted by George Szell and Alexander Schneider.

-- Herbert Glass, Los Angeles Times [5/12/91, review of CBS 45614]
