Warm, exciting performances

"This Isaac Stern 60th birthday celebration was broadcast over PBS for the opening concert of Live From Lincoln Center's 5th season. The matchless musicianship, excitement of live performance, friendship and musical sympathy between the performers, and the warm interpretation of these great pieces make for a listening experience that will touch your heart and soul. Although there are many excellent recordings of the Bach double concerto, I've never heard any that approach the warmth and emotion of this performance. The second movement alone is worth the price of this CD. Great musicians brought together for a live performance or studio recording don't always equal good ensemble playing, but here we have wonderful ensemble playing, as these great musicians balance each other very well. "Essential listening" and "must-have" are overused cliches, but they well apply here. You might also want to get the video of Schubert's "Trout" quintet, filmed live in 1969, with Perlman,violin, Zukerman on viola, Daniel Barenboim, piano, Jacqueline DuPre, cello, and on string bass - Zubin Mehta. It shows another rare moment in time when great musicians who were also great friends were brought together for a public performance."

"After having played the violin for more than twenty years myself, I consider this CD as my top favorite. If you close your eyes while listening to the Bach Concerto, you can virtually "see" the maestros having the time of their life playing together. Unfortunatly, my father took this CD with him, as my folks moved away. I have spent endless hours in CD stores all over Hamburg, Germany, to find the CD. Thanks to Amazon, Ill be able to enjoy the music in a couple of days again. I WILL NOT ACCEPT ANY DELAYS!!! Ricky McKenna"

"I saw this concert when it was aired on public TV live. The previous reviewers' impressions are correct -- these gentlemen were playing their heart out, grinning at each other and just loving every minute of it. That concert used to be available on VHS -- how about a DVD reissue?"
