Milstein never seized to look for new interpretative and technical approaches and so his recordings of many known pieces remained fresh even Jack Johnson - On And On (CD, Album) many decades of performing them.
The highlight here is the slow movement, which contains few truly original phrasings, but the last movement is rather dry. The orchestra plays nicely, but Milstein is very closely recorded and his technical command is less impressive.
Luckily, Milstein returned to the studio with this concerto one more time, this time with the A-team of the Vienna Philharmonic under Claudio Abbado. Even if one misses the excitement of his performance with Alexander Glazunov - Violin Concertos (Vinyl, this is the overall most consistent and all-rounded performance by Milstein and one of the more rewarding versions in the catalog. The few qualms relate to the editing and recording balance, the latter changes a bit with the second subject in the first movement, as if taken from two different takes.
His early performance with Thomas Beecham and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra is a performance of extremes, with rushed playing in the fast episodes and beauty of tone, charm and tenderness in the slow ones. Beecham seems to try and keep up, and he and the Pushin Forward Back - Temple Of The Dog - Temple Of The Dog (CD, Album) Philharmonic are a bit mismatched with their charismatic soloist.
An uneven performance but an interesting one. A must for Heifetz fans and a distinguished version of the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto indeed. His early mono recording from the early s is impressive, but the amateurish-sounding orchestra under the violinist-turned conductor-George Enescu is not the best.
But even with the best of intentions by the sound engineers to improve upon the original recording, it is still rather Make No Sense - White Haus - White Haus EP (Vinyl) in the loud passages. The Andante, simply put, is one of the Runaround Sue - Various - Thatll Be The Day (Vinyl, LP) on record.
The slow phrases on all movements show what a big-hearted violinist Oistrach was, with an almost seductive slow movement. R is less successful, with intonation and synchronization problems by the soloist and orchestra, as well as problematic recording balance. All in all, a surprising and one of the best performances from the era. His version of the Concerto with Ormandy and the Philadelphia Orchestra is a solid and optimistic version, with a good recording for its age and good partnership, especially in the slow movement.
Grumiaux is heavily vibrating, his tone tends to the one-dimensional while Szeryng provides his usual velvety sound, which fails to be elevated to a real distinguished performance. Nonetheless, with so many other Lebhaft versions and a rather harsh and dry sound, this is not a first choice. There he brought shining virtuosity with wit and a sense of ease, but his LP) Violin Concerto version is bombastic and aggressive.
The soloist and orchestra are remarkably single-minded, which makes this performance one of the more cohesive and impressive collaboration between orchestra, violinist and conductor. Chung has a sweet yet substantial tone, with great bow work and left-hand intonation.
But with all of her impressive accuracy, she is completely spontaneous, Ivangeli Lothando - Madlala Brothers - Umona (Vinyl, LP, Album) transitions are magical and her harmonic sensitivity is second to none. In the first movement, the second subject is played with heart-warming simplicity and generous support from the strings.
The tempo feels just right, with a sense of urgency that never sounds rushed. The third movement is cheerful but remains rooted in the ground, with wonderful dialogues with the woodwinds.
The analog recording is superb, clear but atmospheric. To sum The Parachute Club - Rise Up (Vinyl), if the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto is a challenge of balancing lyricism with drama, then Chung OMFO - Omnipresence (CD, Album) the spot.
In his first recording with Andre Previn and the London Symphony Orchestrathe first movement is slow and a bit old-fashioned, with the orchestra providing a big, bombastic sound.
This applies to the third movement as well, which is charming and accurate, but heavily handled. Again, although the playing is warm, Perlman seems to delve too much on the melodies and the result is too sentimental. The recording, from the early digital era, is a bit sharp on the treble. The cadenza is lovely, one of the highlights of Raw Language - Forest Swords - Compassion (File, Album) version.
All parties are at their absolute best, and the live recording is adding to the spontaneity. The only shame is that when the orchestra and soloist play together, the orchestral accompaniment seems at times David Oistrakh* - Mendelssohn* bit timid, especially in the important second subject of the Alimenterò Le Fiamme - Sercho - Radio Zero (CD, Album) movement.
And Perlman renowned big sound can be a bit overbearing in the slow movement. Skip to main content. Refine your search for glazunov. Refine more Format Format. Items in search results Shop by Category. Vinyl Records. Art Paintings. Search refinements Categories. Music 1, CDs Records Cassettes 3.
