Notes & Reviews:

One of Itzhak Perlman's most spectacular concerto discs dating from early digital recording era.

Gramophone
There is really very little that need be said about these virtuoso performances of these two sweetly melodious concertos except to record that they are played as brilliantly as one would expect and that the sound is full and warm.

Penguin Guide
On DG, Perlman achieves a fine partnership with his friend, Barenboim, in a performance (of the Saint-Saens) that is both tender and strong, while Perlman's verve an dash in the finale are dazzling.

Penguin Guide
Perlman's new digital recording of Wieniawski's D minor Concerto offers playing that is effortlessly dazzling, yet he and Barenboim create an attractively songful Andante, so that the scintillating bravura of the perpetuo finale sounds even more dashing by contract.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Salle Pleyel, Paris (01/1983).
