Customer Reviews


I was very excited when I heard this recording-it is the best style and impression of this concerto I have yet to hear.


Rachlin plays the Brahms with true virtuosity and, as Ysaye did, takes full advantage of rubato throughout the entire concerto, while still paying back the borrowed time in full. The recording is exquisite and warrants a place on many collectors shelves. Although much can be said about the Brahms, very little, surprisingly, is to be commended about his interpretation of the Mozart concerto. It lacks a style of the era, and replaces it with somewhat grandois adjustments to the overall pacing and volume of certain phrases, inevitably ruining the pacing of the piece. This is evident especially in the first movement, where Rachlin tends to change the style in certain repeated phrases as they are played consecutively. Even as many liberties are taken with the Mozart, the recording is still amazing and sets itself apart from any other in existence through Rachlin's brilliant interpretation.

A superb recording of the Brahms Violin Concerto

This is a superb recording of the Brahms Violin Concerto. The performance by Julian Rachlin is excellent. However, in my opinion the Rachlin performance does not equal that of the legendary Jascha Heifitz. Although much older (1958), when recording technology was not as advanced, the Heifitiz performance remains the most outstanding. For the serious listener, I highly recommend both recordings. To compare the two performances is alone worth the investment.
