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.

Admirers of Sir Yehudi Menuhin will be pleased to have this compilation of his early stereo recordings of the major violin concertos. I have always enjoyed his version of the Bach Double Concerto with Christian Ferras; it rightly dominated the catalogue throughout the 1960s, and the spirited baroque vitality of the performance, plus a beautifully judged central Largo, give great satisfaction. Moreover, it demonstrates what a good sound balance Peter Andry and Neville Boyling could achieve in London's Kingsway Hall in 1959.

Through his far-reaching endeavors as composer, performer, educator, and ethnomusicolgist, Béla Bartók emerged as one of the most forceful and influential musical personalities of the twentieth century. Born in Nagyszentmiklós, Hungary (now Romania), on March 25, 1881, Bartók began his musical training with piano studies at the age of five, foreshadowing his lifelong affinity for the instrument. Following his graduation from the Royal Academy of Music in 1901 and the composition of his first mature works – most notably, the symphonic poem Kossuth (1903) – Bartók embarked on one of the classic field studies in the history of ethnomusicology. With fellow countryman and composer Zoltán Kodály, he traveled throughout Hungary ……..

James Ehnes is recognised the world over as one of the great violinists of our time – famed for his brilliant technique and musical intelligence as both soloist and chamber musician. 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.
