Reviews:
Outstanding. One of the Best
I have listened to several recordings of Bach Violin Concertos, and the recordings by Isaac Stern with the English Chamber Orchestra are outstanding. They ranks among the best. There are maybe five different recordings that I could recommend (Gremiaux, Perlman, Marriner, Mutter, Stern). You can't go wrong with stern.


Convincing Bach Violin Performance

Stern is certainly to be revered as great violin virtuoso, whether on this recording or not is question.

My humble listening tells me that the first two offerings, A minor and E major Violin Concertos are a bit lackluster and scratchy, and as another review points out, even at bits sound a bit off.

However, for me the final two are magnificent. The final two movements of the Double Violin Concerto are superb, with Perlman and Mehta ringing in with gusto and passion. Gomberg as well does his part in making the oboe and violin concerto a triumph, with lilting, rich phrasing and clear tonality. Truly is a great soloist, and the third movement is outstanding!
