Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
This album is called "The Glenn Dicterow Collection" in tribute to the man who retired this year after 34 years as Philharmonic concertmaster. As often happens, musicians can be superb concertmasters. I'm just glad that the rest of the works (by Kernis, Bernstein, Barber, Waxman, Prokofieff, Szymanowski, and Shostakovich) in this album are only available via download. The engineering, by the way, on the whole is very good - surprising, since all the works were recorded in concert in dreadful Avery Fisher Hall.

Violinist Glenn Dicterow is one of the most prominent American concert artists of his generation. As an 18 year old, the violinist appeared as soloist with the NYPO under the baton of Andre Kostelanetz in the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto. In 1980 he joined the NYPO as Concertmaster and has since performed as its soloist every year. This collection offers three recent concerti recordings spotlighting both Mr. Dicterow and the orchestra he's been an integral member of for nearly 35 years.

Reviews

Eloquent Tribute
If one solely considers the superb audio quality exhibited herein, it would be sufficient reason to acquire this collection. The sound pickup is a well nigh ideal blend of soloist and orchestra. This truly sounds like an honest to goodness real orchestra and soloist in natural equilibrium in an authentically proscribed acoustic. The Avery Fisher Hall performances are particularly noteworthy in this regard. Thatís only the beginning. Throughout, Dicterow plays with a profound sense of musicality and poetry. His technique is beyond reproach as is the support he receives from the NYP and its respective conductors. Discs #2 and #3 which are available only as downloads up the ante further with superb realizations of several modern masterworks. Has a retiring concertmaster ever been afforded this level of a deluxe send off? Probably not. Rest assured itís entirely justified right down to the wonderfully extravagant accompanying booklet.
