Mendelssohn Violin Concerto

Recommended Posts

Has anyone heard the Lin recording with the Philarmonia Orchestra and Tilson Thomas? It's meant to be very good.

On that note, does anyone know if these two versions of it (one on Sony, one on Theta) would be the same? I can't find a reverse-side image for the Theta CD unfortunately. I was originally recommended a Sony issue though it had a different code. The Theta I can get for pennies though as opposed to a fiver.

I really enjoyed this version with Hahn and Jarvi conducting:

I haven't yet heard her CD recording http://www.amazon.co.uk/Mendelssohn-Shostakovich-Violin-Concertos-Dmitry/dp/B00006JNAD/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1421776806&sr=8-1&keywords=hahn+mendelssohn to hear how similar it is but if it is, it's a good one for me.

I'll have to check out Vengerov and Heifetz to compare.
