Vivaldi - The Four Seasons - Perlman - London Philharmonic Orchestra on XRCD24

Superior Audiophile XRCD24 Mastered from the Original Analogue EMI Master Tapes

Israeli-born violinist/conductor Itzhak Perlman leads the London Philharmonic Orchestra in a charismatic performance of Antonio Vivaldi's iconic four violin concertos The Four Seasons recorded on May 18-20, 1976 at No.1 Studio, Abbey Road, London. Engineered by Stuart Eltham and produced by the legendary Suvi Raj Grubb

"Perlman...presents a personality performance, one which naturally brings out the individuality of his artistry. So the momentary hesitations in the bird noises have the finesse of a great artist to make them more compelling, and on balance Perlman's style of phrasing is a degree freer and more overtly expressive than Galway's [version for flute], except that for a movement like the central Adagio of "Summer" he adopts a deliberately simple style, stilling his vibrato.

"There is flair too in the quirky contrasts between the alternating sections of the first movement of that concerto, and generally contrasts of all kinds are heightened. The LPO strings play with great refinement, and with a rather more intimate acoustic than to the other versions, the result is both in scale and sharply defined." - from the original 1976 review by Edward Greenfield, Gramophone
