The New Milstein DVD

March 27, 2004 at 12:40 AM · The new release of a DVD with Nathan Milstein on March the 30th has earlier been mentioned here on the Discussion Board. has now some more information. Milstein is playing a concerto together with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. This makes it likely it must be the Mendelssohn concerto. The cost for this VAI DVD is $ 29.71 on You can get the same thing for the cost of $ 25.00 on an other DVD from an other company. Look at the site

This DVD is region free which is very interesting for us outside the U.S.and Canada.

I guess the DVD:s are just the same. Extra material could of course give more interest to the VAI DVD. Same quality?

The same same company which is advertising on here to the right has a lot of Oistrakh on DVD too, some earlier unreleased an some published on VHS from EMI.

The one from contains only the Mendelssohn concerto and I have to assume that the one from VAI contains a little more, but if not I would still rather buy from VAI. The reason is simply, sends you a burned DVD rather than a pressed DVD. That almost gurantees that a VAI DVD is better quality and has a greater durability.
