I love Vengerov but I think that he completely butchers the Lalo! He starts out fine in the first movement with the solo violin but then comes in sharp on the high e at the end of the opening phrase. Then when he eventually lands on the low c sharp, he kind of bends the note like he is playing Ysaye or something. Then as he ends his passage, it sounds like he is trying to just cut the string in half! Of the many renditions that I have heard of this beautiful piece, this is one of the worst! However, Vengerov has many, many excellent recordings and I recommend many of them.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
