I'm surprised that no one has yet to rate and review such a wonderful album... mullova proved her worth as one of the world's leading violinist, alongside with her other recordings of Bach, Brahms and Sibelius.
Her tone is warm and techniques are quite unquestionable. This is a must-have Mendelssohn violin concerto recording even if you have gotten Cho-Liang Lin, Kyung-wha Chung's versions.
delightfully recorded together with the lesser-known violin concerto in Dm with string orchestra. I have other recordings ( Grumiax, Takezawa, Zimmerman and recently Angele Dubeau under the Analekta label) of this work which Mendelssohn wrote when he was 14 but none beats this one!
Vengerov, Sarah Chang's are also good but this is THE mendelssohn violin concerto!!!

It's interesting to note that all of the best recordings of Mendelssohn's evergreen Violin Concerto are played by violinists whose last names begin with M. They are: Mullova, Mutter, Menuhin, and Milstein. Two women and two men. This one, with Viktoria Mullova, is one of the best. Her playing and intonation are rock solid, while she displays great fexibility of phrasing, presenting each point of the thrice familiar score with total conviction. Everything works wonderful well, and the overall impression is of a seamless, perfect performance of warmth and humanity. The very first entry of the soloist inmmediately conveys a feeling of mastery and identification with the music. It's an impression that one can't explain or prove; just listen, and it's there. A good example is Mullova's performance of the cadenza, which is played with complete logic and balance of phrasing while using just enough, but not too much, passion. The orchestra under Marriner is excellent, and the engineering projects perfect balance between soloist and ensemble.

The bonus is a rare and perfectly realized performance of the early D Minor Violin Concerto of Mendelssohn's 13th year. Mullova and Marriner take this work seriously and gracefully allow the young genius his personal voice in a natural way so that we see the promise of greatness. It may start sounding like a study of Bachian style, but soon becomes the voice of the composer who will write the Rondo Capricioso for piano and the Octet for strings. Again, sound is perfect in a totally satisfying release.

I love the perfect sound of this lady, my favorite violinist. I enjoy more her recents recordings, because she makes a change in her style, initially very perfect so perfect, but the beauty is not always in the perfect style, sometimes the colors of the music are directly referenced from the different nuances and little changes in the phrases, that turn the music from boring to interesting. Mendelssohn's Concert is one of the masterpieces for the violin of our times, but is not his only concert, he has other one that he compose when teenager. Many people not agree in mention this concert, because feel that Mendelssohn not had the correct maturity. BUT sincerely I enjoyed this piece because is diferrent, is a young Mendelssohn, with new ideas, and with the need of explore the world with his sound. Is a pleasure hear Ms. Mullova performing this concerto, for the enjoy of her listeners, who taste the differences between the two concerts performed with extraordinary quality.
