I have Perlmans Beethoven Violin concerto DVD and the Brahms Violin concerto. When I first listened to these my reaction was the same. I liked it but it didn't really move me. Now after listening to them about 20 times I think these two concertos are greatest pieces of music ever conceived. I also noticed that the initial reaction to Beethovens piece was similiar back in the day (Beethovens Day). I was just wondering why some music like this takes a while to warm up to? When this happens though it seems I'm a believer for life. Does anybody else notice this and why does it work that way?
