Wieniawski's scintillating works are played with brilliance and great musical charm here by Perlman and Sanders (piano) for the duets, and Ozawa conducting the LPO for the concertos. It is somtimes said that Perlman's playing has often been recorded too "forward", so one can hear the "between the notes" bowing sounds when he plays.

These recordings of the complete Mozart Violin Concertos made over ten years ago for CBC and long out of the catalogue sound as fresh as the day they were made. James directs a hand picked orchestra ofcolleagues who are as meticulous and fine musicians as he is. The cadenzas in all the concertos are by James Ehnes who studied the composer’s own cadenzas of the contemporaneous piano concertos–especially Nos 8 & 9 K246 and 271.

It is hard to believe that one gets used to it; it is amazing that Mozart wrote his five Violin Concertos before the age of twenty; The maturity, especially of the latter two, is that of great masterpieces of maturity. Here is the integral, flanked by the three isolated movements (two Rondos, an Adagio) which are certain to be Mozart's, and other Concertos sometimes attributed to him by mistake or by facetiousness in the case of Henri Casadesus … The Canadian violinist James Ehnes, the "Jasha Heifetz of our time" from a very serious North American newspaper, has assembled here an improvised orchestra assembled in Toronto, the Mozart Anniversary Orchestra, Himself directs the violin. A very sober interpretation, in which the cadences are also signed by Ehnes.

Composed almost 20 years apart, the two violin concertos by Dmitri Shostakovich were both conceived with the great violinist David Oistrakh in mind and dedicated to him. Shostakovich completed Concerto No. 1 in 1948, at a time when he had fallen out of grace with the Soviet authorities and it seemed uncertain if the work would ever be performed in public. This is reflected in the concerto which begins with a dark and solitary violin song over gloomy cellos and double basses.

The Australian Chamber Orchestra and its enterprising leader, violinist Richard Tognetti, wade with these popular Mozart works into a field with plenty of competition, and the results, as usual with this popular group, range from good to superb. The performances are generally oriented toward historical practice; the string players use gut strings, tuned slightly below modern concert pitch, and the oboes and horns are historically appropriate instruments. In general matters of attack and phrasing, the players do not diverge too far from modern practice, and Tognetti, in his own notes (in English, German, and French), points out that even if treatises of the period laid down certain procedures in regard to these matters, the notoriously capricious Mozart might well have done something completely different.
