CD Reviews

A rich and electrifying reading
David Adams | San Francisco, CA USA | 12/30/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The high point of this fine recording is the Sibelius concerto, in particular the first movement. Shaham tears into the notes with thrilling immediacy, and you can hear the Sinopoli and the Philharmonia ignite with the same enthusiasm, racing along with the soloist. Shaham's tone is richly colored, with the earthiness of "digging into" the instrument. (Compare this with Anne-Sofie Mutter's equally captivating performance, where she creates a sinuous, almost icy tone and a very different atmosphere.) The recording quality is DG at its best, full of detail and depth. Listen to the beautiful, aching first statement of the violin in the Sibelius and you will at once be transfixed. And that's only the beginning."
Simply amazing

"Though I purchased this album primarily for Gil Shaham's rendition of the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto, I quickly became hooked on the Sibelius even though I was never a big fan of it.
An understatement for Shaham's Tchaikovsky is exhilerating. Many say that he takes the tempo for the last movement of this piece too quickly, but I feel that as a listener, it really makes you jump up and scream in delight! The orchestra and Shaham keep bouncing back and forth, pushing and pushing until the piece ends off and you find yourself before you know it at Shaham's personal website looking up when his next concert date is.Simply amazing."

"In my opinion, Shaham's versions of these two concertos are the best available in modern, digital sound. Granted, there have been many other fine interpretations in the past, with Oistrakh's being one of my favorites. Shaham plays these works with a power and intensity that is simply unmatched by other current virtuosos."
