Violin Concertos
Joshua Bell (violin) The Cleveland Orchestra / Vladimir Ashkenazy, Christoph von Dohnányi

[ Double Decca / 2 CD ]

Release Date: Wednesday 1 June 2005

'It is an outstanding account ... very recommendable if you fancy the unusual coupling of Wieniawski ... full, brilliant recording, with the soloist well balanced.' The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs (1994

Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto is one of the most popular violin concertos in the repertory and was originally released with Wieniawski's 2nd Concerto - under the direction of one of today's great interpreters of Russian music, pianist and conductor Vladimir Ashkenazy. Another popular violin concerto - that by Brahms - receives a glowing performance with Joshua Bell and Christoph von Dohnányi; this is coupled with Schumann's rarely-herad Violin Concerto. Throughout this set the Cleveland Orchestra provides magnificent orchestral support.

'It is an outstanding account ... very recommendable if you fancy the unusual coupling of Wieniawski ... full, brilliant recording, with the soloist well balanced.' The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs (1994)

'Joshua Bell's commanding performance of the Brahms Violin Concerto is full of flair, demonstrating not only his love of bravura display, but also his ready gift for turning a phrase individually in a way that catches the ear, always sounding spontaneous. Full, atmospheric recording and a no less outstanding coupling put this among the very finest versions.' The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs (2002)
