Which is a bit unfair to Entremont and Rose, who turn in very good but not great performances. But Zuckerman's first disc was one of the milestones of my journey into great violin playing, and has never (as far as I know) been issued as an entity on CD. Here we have one of the four performances it contained, the Saint-Saens Introduction and Rondo - the Vieuxtemps 5th concerto is the fillup on another disc of Bruch and Lalo. Chausson and Wieniawski anyone? They must still be in the vaults.

This disc was recorded in 1965 and 1970 and originally analogue, remastered. The sound is excellent and rounded [to my ear at least]. I totally agree with the reviewer about the Introduction and Rondo Caprriccioso played by Zukerman. Its one of those familiar pieces that a great violinist can bring alive and make you think youve heard it for the first time. The balance between violin and orchestra is spot on and the sound gin clear. This disc also contains a superb recording of the Cello Concerto played by the American, [perhaps not so well known and now departed] Leonard Rose with the Philharmonia Orchestra under Ormandy. For me this is the jewel in the crown of this recording. Rose played an Amati cello from 1662 and the tone is superb. The piece to me is one of the great Cello Concertos. In addition to all this you have Piano Concertos 2 and 4. In all, 75 minutes of cracking music by an under rated romantic composer who perhaps doesn`t get as much recognition as he should. Certainly if you like Rachmaninov piano works you will enjoy the paino concertos. This is incredible value, especially, if like me, you buy it secondhand at a ridiculous price. Hope you enjoy it - I have.

I obtained this very cheap disc for the Zukerman contribution; the other items are also worth having in serviceable performances with middling sound

Reference performance by Zukerman 22 July 2008
By Nehemia Velvart - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The performance of the Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso for violin and Orchestra by Pinchas Zukerman is the very best recording I've heard of this piece ever (I have heard over 20 recordings); it is the reason I purchased this CD and it is truly a collector's jewel of a performance.

All the concertos are decent performances and excellently recorded.

best recordings of piano concertos 2 and 4, and a real bargain 28 April 2012
By John K. Gayley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Hard to beat this. There are numerous recordings of the piano concerti, many of them (Collard, Licad, etc) very very good. I still think Entremont has them beat in these two. The Zukerman rendition of the Introduction and Rondo is top notch, as is the Rose interpretation of the cello concerto. The sonics, (while not 2012 standards) are fine for anyone except obsessive audiophiles.

So what's at risk? Not much. 75+ minutes of great music at a bargain price, rendered by people who lived and breathed it. A criminally inexpensive introduction to the flashy artistry of Saint Saens' concerto writing.

Two winners and a disappointed performance! 30 Oct. 2005
By Hiram Gomez Pardo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Though I am not a consequent of Entremont 's style, I must acknowledge Entremont was in very good shape, those evenings with Ormandy and the Philadelphia Orchestra, specially with the Fourth Concerto. He caught the required élan and marked bourgeois style, with the adequate bright sound, so typical of the French Orchestras. Of course, the hitherto per excellence still belongs to Robert Casadesus who in recorded an admirable performance under Rodzinski in a live performance still available.

I have problems with the second Concerto who finds in Jean Marie Darré and Artur Rubinstein their most remarkable performers to date. Entremont employs excessively the pedal and confers the Concerto a certain dryness and rhythmic untidiness, that joined with a glassy sound of the Orchestra really draws badly the whole meaning of the piece which, somehow would seem to coincide with Oscar Levant when affirmed about this work: "It starts like Bach and concludes like Offenbach."

Fortunately Leonard Rose saves the game with his fabulous approach of the Cello Concerto.
That Ormandy sound. 13 Mar. 2014
By Richard Gollin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This CD is currently about $4 from Barnes and Noble. I bought it for the 4th concerto which is one of my favorite French bon-bons. Am used to the Bernstein CBS version but this version is also highly recommended; the silky, even sexy, Philadelphia / Ormandy sound is at its very best here. Rush out and buy it before it disappears.
