Format: Audio CD
The challenge in listening to this CD is finding a favorite selection in this excellent compilation. Antonio Bazzini's Scherzo fantastique, Op. 25, the fourth selection on this CD, is an electrifying performance. The Bazzini selection is played flawlessly and is filled with dynamic energy, playfulness, joy, and virtuoso pyrotechnics. There is a wide range of selections on this CD, spanning three centuries from the violin repertoire, from Bach's Violin Partitas to Anton Karas' "The Harry Lime Theme." The latter is not only beautiful but a lot of fun to listen to, with a melody, rhythm, and style of performance that reminded me more of the jazz violinist Stephane Grapelli than of classical violinists.

Two composers, Bach and Kreisler, are represented by two different selections, with a different violinist playing each one. Kreisler's Liebesleid is performed by Kyung Wha Chung, while on the very next track, Joshua Bell performs Kreisler's Liebesfreud. In the case of Bach, one selection from his Partitas for solo violin is performed magnificently and with great intensity and passion by Nathan Milstein. The other selection is performed by Gidon Kremer, who has a very different style. Even the most ardent admirers of Kremer recognize that his style and interpretations are not necessarily for everybody. In my own case, I prefer to listen to Nathan Milstein, Henryk Szeryng, Arthur Grumiaux, Iona Brown, Isaac Stern, Pinchas Zuckerman, Itzak Perlman, and, amongst the younger violinists, Maxim Vengerov and Joshua Bell.

...or even good. Out of all of the tunes on the cd only a couple played clearly and through to the end....Luckily one of the good ones was the very one I was looking for as a violin solo. Dont be cheap like me if you want a good quality cd....this is not it.
