Notes & Reviews:

EMI Classics relaunches the popular EMI Master Series: The definitive series of great classical music from a trove of the most notable and revered classical recordings ever made. Available on CD and for digital download, this newly repackaged installment of 10 master celebrates EMI Classics' greatest artists, including Maria Callas, Nigel Kennedy and Itzhak Perlman. All performances in this series were recorded, mastered, or a re-mastered at the internationally renowned Abbey Road Studios in London.

Gramophone
These are strong and purposeful readings of the Mendelssohn and Bruch First Concertos, which Itzhak Perlman plays with brilliance, ease and assurance. The recording of the Bruch Second Concerto is of the very highest quality, enjoyable and superbly played.
