This is, surely, the finest recording of the famous Tchaikovsky violin concerto. I simply cannot find a fault - the soloist is sublime (tone, tuning, musicality...everything!), the orchestra is magnificent (never obtrusive, but a definite presence) and need I say anything about Gergiev? This famous, dramatic, but very beautiful concerto has been paired with Myaskovsky's violin concerto, which is also given a superb performance (although with only limited recordings and performances given of this splendid work, I have little to compare it to). The sound quality is also of the highest quality. The programme/sleeve notes were a little lacking in my opinion, although I am sure they would be ample for any casual listener and this certainly did not stop my enjoyment of what is otherwise a truly magnificent recording.

To make a claim such as "this is the finest recording of one of the most famous concertos ever written" seems a little stretched, but when you hear this wonderful disc through your speakers, I am sure you will agree.

I recently purchased this version of the Tchaikovsky violin concerto to add to my many versions of the same. This cd for me was like hearing the work anew. Vadim Repin is without doubt one of the new young blood of violin virtuosi to grace the stage. In this, a live performance the Kirov Orchestra conducted by Valery Gergiev has never sounded better. The orchestra compliments Repin to perfection and the event is one of those rare classical experiences which don't seem to be captured live these days. Repin brings the concerto to life, the opening movement briskly paced, never elaborate with a technique to die for. The second movement is lovingly performed, sweet and delicate followed with a finale which starts electrically charged with Repin's improvised pizzicato at the beginning followed by a blaze of glory in the final bars where the violin and orchestra attack each other in a brutal fist fight, the brass exploding onto the scene being beaten down into a frenzy by the powerful bowing of Repin. This is one of the finest Tchaikovsky concertos ever committed to disc, Repin is a star for the future, this version surpasses his recording some 10 years earlier with Emmanuel Krivine, also part of my collection from Amazon, this too is wonderful, but for the sheer excitement of a live performance where conductor and soloist seem to have found a rare, unique balance in providing a masterpiece of a recording. If like me, you love the violin concerto then this MUST become part of your collection, this is a serious contender to rival the likes of Milstein and the unsurpassed or unequalled, until now versions by the legendary Jascha Heifetz. Another reason to add this to your collection is the delectable new romantic concerto by Myaskovsky, a loving concerto, sumptuously played. Violin playing doesn't come any better. Remember the name, you heard it first here...Vadim Repin, virtuosi extro-ordinaire!! GO GET SOME!!!

Repin's playing of the Tchaikovsky is simply brilliant - if you don't already know this work, you'll be bowled over by it: if you already know the concerto, it will be as if you are hearing it completely afresh - no sense of routine, totally compelling. The Miaskovsky is a rare and valuable coupling. The recording is excellent. Well worth adding to a collection!!
