5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Beethoven, 5 Feb. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Beethoven - Violin Concerto; Kreutzer Sonata (Isabelle Faust/Alexander Melnikov) (Audio CD)
I have various recordings of the Bethoven Violin Concerto ,Kogan,Heifetz,Ricci,Perlaman,Zuckerman.....my personal favourite has always been Milstein,for me his Beethoven was the one.
However,i was browsing ,wanting a Beethoven violin sonata set ,i have Kreisler (my first)and Perlman ,couldn't find a Milstein set ,reviews were interesting so i took the plunge and bought the Faust/Melnikov set.Glad i did,absolutely stunning,perfect Beethoven as i have never heard ,the subtleties of dynamics in both violinist and pianist are breathtaking.Spurred on by this i bought the Concerto ,best recording ive ever heard,replaces all others in my opinion.
Modern violin playing is a funny business on the one hand you have Vegnerov and Gil Shaham extending the Heifetz legacy and on the other Manze and others pushing the original instrument perspective,Isobelle Faust has managed to play Beethoven in such a way as we are unaware of the performer and totally aware of Beethoven.
So ,more of this please,i would Love to hear her take on Mozart,i'm sure she could beat my Mutter set into the ground.
