Beethoven, Bruch: Violin Concertos Customer Reviews
||Excellent digital upgrade from Pentatone|
The Grumiaux/Davis recording of the Beethoven VC has been one of my two favorite perfomances of this work for years, although there are passages within where I believe that the tempo that Davis sets for the orchestra are a bit awkward. What shines through here, though, is Grumiaux's Romantic appreciation of this work which has always been one of the determining factors in my preference for this over many others that I own. I had never heard this recording of the Bruch VC prior to the arrival of this disk, but it too is very well done. The sound quality was excellent on the original Philips record of the Beethoven, and I'm happy to say that Pentatone have given us an excellent digital transfer here (as they do most often). In my opinion, in the SACD format, there are no other contenders for the that combine excellent sound with a near definitive performance of the Beethoven VC. Strongly recommended.
