Was my fave, until I heard Arthur Grumiaux

"Admittedly, this is a great recording and one that I own and love. But alas, it was knocked off the pedastal where I had placed it when I obtained the Philips CD featuring Arthur Grumiaux (Philips 420700). I would encourage lovers of this music to give a listen to Grumiaux. I found his interpretations to have the best rhythmic, melodic and just plain musical sensibilities of any that I've heard. Technique is invisible; it's the music that comes through with transparent clarity, strength and sensitivity. And the Philips transfers are outstanding. Own both Grumiaux and Perlman, et al, if you dare, and throw Pinnock/Standage in for good measure!"

"Hey, is this Bach? Perlman and Zuckerman play Bach as if it were some Gypsy music, or worse: a Hollywood movie. The violins are weeping, super-romantic, tear-squeezing. Perlman did the same with Mozart's violin concertos, but there he was a little more moderate, and the performance is fairly convincing. But in Bach??? - I ran away back to Grumiaux.
If the rating was only about the solists' interpretation, I would have rated it lower. But the orchestra is alright, and, which is more: Both perlman and Zuckerman have a very good sound."
The greatest recording of these concertos

"I was a kid when I first heard my dad play this lp and was immediately blown away. No other recordings come close to this one. This should definitely be a staple in any classical music collection."
