SHAHAM / PREVIN / LONDON S. O.
Top Customer Reviews
I love the Barber as a work, but actually prefer the Korngold, a very underrated composer. The performance is great - the melodies soar and the intimate sections have a powerful, underlying intensity. I love Previn's sensitive support and Shaham plays with incredible ease and understanding. He obviously love this music, too. The only slight niggle I'd have with the recording is in sound quality, which I found to be rather uneven - especially in the louder sections - and also some of Shaham's playing seems to verge on the scratchy/frantic. Even so, it is a great recording and surely the best there is of these works.
As filler, Shaham is accompanied by Previn on piano in Korngold's "Much Ado" suite -- it's lovely and has the violin in better scale than the concerto recordings. Make no mistake, though -- Shaham is well worth hearing!
