. . . .unbelieveable but true: the Max Bruch concerto performed in a way one seldom hears, exciting and unsentimental, and free from over-exaggerated romantism. Ya`akov Rubistein played his solo part with a classically clear and fine tone, using a variety of nuances of expression. The dramatic virtouso passages were performed with depth and seriousness, the hungarian-like suonding finale with energy and class. Wonderful! This violin sang lyrically and sensitively in the Adagio. . . . .
