"This is a must for Beethoven lovers. In Barenboim's rendition, the violin concerto becomes like a sixth piano concerto, ethereal, beautiful and dramatic all at once, like Beethoven's fourth piano concerto. In this version, the concerto sounds as wonderful as it does on the violin, at times better. The cadenza is Beethoven's own and remarkable, with accompanying timpani. Zukerman's romances are superb too, full of pathos."
