This is one of my most favorite recordings. I especially enjoy the concerto. Vadim Repin is absolutely the greatest violinist and musician. Repin and the conductor Riccardo Mutti have just incredible chemistry together. There is a lot of dialogs between violin and orchestra, thus, it is very important for the soloist and orchestra to be able to communicate in music. I think that the conductor does an amazing job understanding and following the soloist, as well as showing the best in orchestra part. This concerto is very bright and uplifting in spirit. The first movement is just sunny and hopeful. The second one is very romantic and gentle. It reminds me of some beautiful fairy-tale about perfect and very fragile love. The main theme of the third movement is very playful and kindly humorous while the second theme in violin is very sensitive and touching. The final creshendo in orchestra at the very end of the piece together with ascending passages in violin sound very bright and energizing. The last section of the theme in violin right before final chord is very gentle and humorous. This concerto would definitely leave a listener in a great mood. I always listen to this concerto in the morning in my car which helps me to smile during morning traffic and the rest of the day as well. Besides, no matter how many times I have heard it, I still discover new things in it. I really think that Repin and Mutti created an absolute masterpiece together.
