The last 3 tracks are the movements to Viotti 22. I love the concerto. It Boosts technique very rapidly with trills/mordents, spicatto/sautille, tricky string crossings and double stops. The other tracks on the album are as follows.

Reiding Concerto in B minor

Sietz concerto no. 2

Accolay Concerto in A minor

DeBeriot Scene De Ballet

Viotti 22

He tackles the Viotti so very well. Its a worth while cd.

For more cds log on to the following website:

www.arkivmusic.com or net try both, but I think its com

Good Luck GET THE PERLMAN CD THOUGH!!!

June 15, 2004 at 08:55 PM · lol...yeah, the have to be really quick because there on 16th notes. the trills are from 3rd finger 1st postition a on e string to first finger b on first position.

Rachel, i am not sure why you are having a hard time locating a recording. Are you looking in the fridge? ;)

There is the Perlman, one by Shumsky, Walfisch (on authentic instrumnet...) some East European lady and a few others, Oistrakh is hanging aoround somewhere but is probably hard to get.

All you have to do is search Amazon.com.

Cheers,

Buri

June 17, 2004 at 12:37 PM · Isaac Stern had a wonderful recording of it too.

June 17, 2004 at 05:51 PM · Grumiaux will be your only choice. He is simply the BEST, the FINEST and never surpassed by any other players. I think Oistrakh could come on a close 2nd choice.

June 17, 2004 at 06:18 PM · i'm not sure i share that view at all

June 17, 2004 at 07:42 PM · Perlmans is still on top. Hands down
