Despicable?? Hardly...
M. J. Fitzpatrick | Washington DC, United States | 06/24/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"While I agree that Grumiaux's performances with Sir Colin and the LSO are superb, the Perlman/Levine cycle on DG is a very close second, and it is the choice to make if a digital recording is desired. Perlman's tone is impeccable here, and his playing is always tasteful. The slower movements show him at his formidable best. My only quibble is that the recording pushes the orchestra a bit to the background, but when Perlman is in such wonderful form, that is a very minor complaint. This disc has been in my collection for twenty years, and I still consider it one of my favorites. A marvelous recording."
Ultimate Mozart has style and substance
M. J. Fitzpatrick | 10/16/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Mozart's music shows a balance between having a lot to express yet not trying to say it all at once. These performances capture that balance brilliantly; the style is all there, but the substance remains the focus. Perlman's interpretation of the melodic lines is so fully realized and has such depth that nothing more could be asked. Levine leads the Vienna Philharmonic in accompaniment equally complete and totally complimentary. The result is a fine performance which shows the stylistic charm of Mozart at his best."
Great Mozart
Nahum Wengrov | Jerusalem Israel | 06/30/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Perlman and Levine's performances of Mozart Viloin Concertos, and especially the 5th Violin Concerto included in this album, are expertly done. The music flows, the tempo is easy to follow, and it is a pleasure to listen to. In my opinion, this is how Mozart ought to be performed."
