Let me start by saying that I have the utmost respect for Zuckerman and Mintz. They are great players and I don't mean to take anything away from them.
However, what is the deal with their chords? They both have such pure, beautiful sounds, but when it comes to chords, all I hear is crunch, crunch, crunch. They force their sound when it comes to three note and four note chords. That is undeniable. Examples:
Zuckerman-Tchaikovsky (chords at the end of the exposition of the first mov't are basically inaudible) and Bruch Concerti
The question is: why? Why do they do that? I'm interested to hear your opinions, please.
