Absolutely top playing by all. Mr Perlman is as usual, top class. In a piece that is not well known,he exels.

In later life heifetz saw perlman as an artistic soul mate. These performances confirm the great man's assessment of the young pretender. The saint saens particularly is an electrifying reading.

Masterful and Glorious 12 Oct 2008
By Peter Prainito - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Recently I heard the beautiful Lalo "Symphonie Espagnole" at a Chicago Symphony concert performed by the orchestra's concertmaster Robert Chen, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. However, I felt that it lacked somewhat in individuality. Therefore I went on a quest and purchased several different recordings of it by the following acclaimed violinists: Joshua Bell, Sarah Chang, and Kyung Wha Chung. I'm happy to report that the different recordings and readings are all wonderful and highly recommended. During my search for other recordings, I read the one really negative review of the Perlman rendition and was hesitant to purchase it. Judging from Perlman's great reputation and other wonderful recordings of his that I own, I proceeded to order the CD of the Lalo of which I'm reviewing. I am so happy that I did make this last purchase. As great as the other violinists on my other Lalo "Symphonie Espagnole" recordings are, Perlman really goes to the front of the line in my opinion. His beautiful intonation, amazing technique, and feel for this music (not at all self-indulgent) are just about as perfect as one can hope to get. So much so that if I were forced to keep only one of my Lalo "Symphonie Espagnole" CDs, this would be my choice. Coupled with the Lalo are equally beautiful readings of the Saint-Saens "Violin Concerto No.3" (with a sumptuous middle movement) and the Berlioz "Reverie et Caprice". I might add that not only is Perlman's playing great, but so is that of the Orchestre de Paris conducted by Daniel Barenboim. Lastly, the acoustics and sound of this CD are just as glorious as is the playing. Highly recommended.

An Excellent CD 3 Jan 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Perlman does a great job of interpreting and expressing himself in the Symphonie Espagnole. He plays it with good tone and great technical ability, especially in the fast sections. The Concerto by Saint-Seans is a great addition to this disc, as it was originally written for Pablo Sarsate, the Spanish Violinist, same as the Symphonie Espagnole.

This is one of the best recordings of the Lalo Symphonie Espagnole or Saint-Saens Violin Concerto you'll find anywhere, plus, at a great value!

A pleasure to listen to 31 July 2001

I wasn't very familiar with Lalo until I heard a composition on a local classical music radio station. I was instantly in awe. I bought the album primarily because of him, but have found Saint-Saens just as good. Though the cover may look corny (that was my impression at least), the quality of this disc is basically impeccable. Lalo and Saint-Saens are both such extraordinary composers, I've found it embarrassing not to have known them until recently.

just because there's a better remastered version... 15 Nov 2001
By liang - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
this IS the Thing!! Barenboim and Pearlman!Orquestre de Paris, and its own music director!(well, Barenboim still had a healthy relationship with maybe the best frech orquestre then). if you are not familiar with french school, this CD is the best introduction, then you may like to hare a little Ravel and Debussy, and you will find Bizcet is as good as Lalo! this is a 5 star ablum, i reduce one because there's a better remastered version by DG on their 98' Century Collection(1980,Barenboim). the sound is much better, since the recording was realized by the year 80, and DDD was not such a mature technology yet. always better if be remastered later, isn't it? music first,that's right, but if a better sound is available, why not?!
