Notes & Reviews:

A wide-ranging tribute to one of the greatest violinists of the last century. The encore pieces accompanied by Georges Pludermacher, first issued in 1983 although recorded in November 1975, have long been unavailable. Milstein's Tchaikovsky Concerto with Claudio Abbado at the helm is generally recognized as one of the finest on disc.

Penguin Guide - Tchaikovsky
Milstein's fine (1973) version with Abbado remains among the more satisfying recordings.
