Notes & Reviews:

Distinctive Japanese violinist, Midori, joins the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra with Pinchas Zukerman, to perform the violin concertos of Bach and Vivaldi.

"These are all good, stylish performances, with sometimes rich string sound set off by a very reasonably audible and usually very welljudged harpsichord contribution. Also with a good quality of recording, they can be confidently recommended to those listeners who wish simply, and entirely sensibly, to enjoy the music For a 14-year-old [Midori’s playing] is stupefyingly good; indeed, in the two double violin concertos she plays with Zukerman on pretty equal terms. This is an accomplishment restricted, you might say, to only a very few 14-year-olds, girls and boys, Japanese, European, or anything else." -Gramophone
