Perhaps my opinion is biased, being that she is my private teacher, but which recording do you guys prefer? The interpretation by Dr. McGrath or the original by Perlman? I'm not trying to compare skill by any means, but just this particular recording. Personally I find that Dr. McGrath's recording has a much greater sense of emotion and passion for the piece. I believe that Perlman's was a good recording, but it just doesn't seem as though he put as much attention to detail into his phrasing. Some (not all) of the notes feel "played", rather than sung. But, that's just my opinion. What do you guys think of it?
