Bruch & Mendelssohn Violin Concertos

Mendelssohn: Concerto for Violin and Orchestra in E minor, Op. 64

Bruch: Concerto No.1 for Violin and Orchestra in G Minor, Op. 26

Mariss Jansons, conductor

Berlin Philharmonic

“If ever a disc offered a reason to duplicate repertoire, then this one does. To hear it is to fall in love with these works all over again, and no praise can be higher than that.”

“…[Midori is] dazzling on her latest disc from Sony Classical, Mendelssohn & Bruch Violin Concertos, recorded live with the Berlin Philharmonic conducted by Mariss Jansons. Under Jansons, the Berliners play with authoritative richness, while Midori’s unfailingly sweet yet sturdy renditions of the solo lines hover as if in midair, making for a captivating light-and-dark contrast in both works.” Boston Herald
