Legendary violinist Ivri Gitlis (almost 91 years old) listens to Marié Rossano playing Mendelssohn’s violin concerto Op. 64, 3rd movement, and apparently likes what he hears.
These days, our beloved Mr. Perlman has put out very useful videos for our young violinists. Watch this violin legend talk about the challenges of performing the Beethoven Violin Concerto:
This a great example of great phrasing, and that TONE! I like it at this speed. Those who want to “show off” at 1.5X the printed speed can’t come up with the marvelous depth of this interpretation, which needs this tempo and much more. Zukerman gives it all here in this truly beautiful rendition of such a popular concerto.
