 Why Play This? July 2, 2018 By Bryan Geyer (San Luis Obispo, CA) See All My Reviews "Just heard this disc on KUSC. It's clearly the worst performance of the popular Mendelssohn Violin Concerto that's ever been released—and it doesn't matter how many I've missed. Can't imagine why the KUSC morning host would select this recording." Report Abuse
 No balance September 18, 2017 By Claire E. See All My Reviews "This recording is frustrating to the listener, as it's very poorly balanced. The soloist Is evidently backstage somewhere, very hard to hear. I would never buy this version!" Report Abuse
