Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Andrew Farach-Colton
The dashing Maxim Vengerov is one of the leaders of a bumper crop of young violin virtuosos. With superbly sculpted support from the Chicago Symphony Orchestra under Daniel Barenboim, Vengerov gives a near-flawless performance of Sibelius' Violin Concerto. Poised yet passionate, Vengerov makes the most of the music's pure, wintry atmosphere. The enthusiastic audience at this 1997 Cologne concert get two solo encores: the sarabande from Bach's D Minor Partita, and Ysaÿe's fiendishly difficult Third Sonata. Moving to a warmer musical climate, Barenboim takes to the piano and Plácido Domingo picks up the baton for a vivid rendering of Spanish composer Manuel de Falla's colorful triptych, Nights in the Gardens of Spain. Then Barenboim conducts more of de Falla's picturesque visions of Spain, in popular excerpts from El Sombrero de tres picos (The Three-Cornered Hat) and El Amor brujo (Love, the Magician), concluding with a sizzling account of the famous "Ritual Fire Dance."
