4.0 out of 5 stars Buy it for Zuckerman, 18 Jun 2013
This review is from: Piano, Cello Concertos (Zukerman) (Audio CD)
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dont forget the Cello., 21 Nov 2013

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Piano, Cello Concertos (Zukerman) (Audio CD)
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.
