    The perfect recording.

    If ever there was a "perfect" recording of Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto, this is it. This is not an overly loud, flashy or barbaric recording. Instead, it is a delecate, artistic, perfectly timed interpretation that could only be produced by the combined skills of masters like Issak Stern and Eugene Ormandy. Stern's style and skill are such that you hear ever single note played, no exceptions. Stern the most perfect sense of timing. He joins the orchestra exactly when he should and ever note is clearly played, regardless of how fast his runs are. If a 64th note is written, a 64th note is played. It's as simple as that. Anyone who has an analytical ear will simply rave about this performance. I have studied 5 different performances of the Mendelssohn, both live and recorded, and can thus say this is the best I have heard. I am not as familier with the Dvorak as with the Mendelssohn, however, it is certainly a complex and powerful piece that won't fail to impress any lover of late romantic style.
