Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Magazine
excellent sound: the spacious but not over-resonant acoustic and admirable balance between soloist and orchestra remain exemplary and appealing

Gramophone Classical Music Guide
Perlman's account of the Berg Violin Concerto with the Boston orchestra under Ozawa has long occupied a respected place in the catalogue. The original reviewer in Gramophone in March 1980 was completely convinced by Perlman's 'commanding purposefulness'. As to the recording, he wrote that 'though Perlman's violin - beautifully caught - is closer than some will like, there's no question of crude spotlighting'.

Twenty years later and in a different competitive climate, his favourable verdict still holds good. Perlman is also a little too close in the Tzigane, the recording of which sets him very firmly front-stage again. But this is playing of stature and still among the best available versions.

There are more desirable recordings now available of the Stravinsky.
