Have adored this music for sometime and have a recording of it (Anne-Sophie Mutter, Karajan and the Berlin Philharmonic). But this is better, way better. The DVD of the live recording is magic, allowing us to see just how awesome Anne-Sophie's technique is. Cannot recommend this highly enough.

This is a nice programme and most of it is excellent. The Concerto is a good performance with alert support from the Gewandaus Orchestra and a good mix of passion and lyricism from Mutter. Perhaps when she was younger the interpretation was a little fresher, but here it is effective and does the work justice. The very much less well-known Sonata is also very well played. The Trio is a marvellous work. On the CD it sounds fine on the whole and gives full satisfaction. However, like the Sonata, it has been recorded in the empty Musikvereien. This works with the Sonata, where the violin and piano are sufficently different in sound each to register cleanly, and where in any case there are only two instruments, but occasionally on the CD with the Trio, the sound is a little boomy and congested. It is the 'tubbiness' of the 'cello sound throughout (and particularly in its lower register) that does most to undermine the effect, and I am sure that is not Lynn Harrell's fault. Indeed, it is a fine performance, but the slightly congested sound does not do it full justice. It is only fair to say, however - and I do not know why this is - that the DVD suffers far more in that respect, and on it the Trio does not sound well, which is a shame.

The DVD is otherwise good. The direction of the Concerto is natural and not too intrusive - we see what is going on without looking up the performers' nostrils too much. This is true in the Muskverein too (and the building itself looks wonderful), but as I said the sound problem in the Trio, marginal on the CD, is serious. I do not at all agree, by the way, with another reviewer who takes exception to Previn's piano playing ; it is deft and secure throughout, his touch is assured and his technique is still fully the equal of this very note-based music.

I found the performance of the violin concerto a little fiery at first but remembering the description Mendelssohn gave to it originally I have warmed to the performance considerably .

The trio is beautifully played and I can't understand the previous reviewer's criticisms of Previn .

Finally, the unjustly neglected violin sonata is shown to be a terrific piece

Five stars !
