passionate and rhapsodic,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Violin Concerto (Perlman, Bpo, Barenboim) (Audio CD)
This is a highly romantic performance and a good contrast to the more classical renditions (e.g. Tetzlaff). Barenboim with puts the Berlin Phil in the same rhapsodic mood. Perlman sits proudly in the russian school of violin alongside Heifetz and Oistrakh (both players you would want to have also). The cd is a bit mean as we only get the concerto but at discount price it is a bargain. Recently bought a lot of Perlman's recordings - Dvorak, Korngold, Beethoven also are all worth having.
