Paganini Violin Concertos

  • Concerto for Violin and Orchestra No. 1
  • Concerto for Violin and Orchestra No. 2

Accardo brings to these performances all his formidable virtuosity and artistry, displaying superb technique, pure intonation and an ever present sense of style and good taste. In this he is well matched by the LPO under Charles Dutoit. I can't help feeling, though, that Perlman offers just that little bit extra in terms of confidence of attack and clarity of instrumental line. Moreover, his EMI disc has a decidedly cleaner orchestral sound, the tutti sounding just a little muffled in this DG digital remastering. So for the First Concerto alone one might well be advised to go for Perlman (his coupling is the Sarasate Carmen Fantasy), though anyone seeking Paganini's most popular two concertos will doubtless be well satisfied with this well-filled DG Compact Disc.'
