PERFORMER: Itzhak Perlman/LPO
CATALOGUE NO: CDM 7 64333-2 ADD/DDD (1976)
Perlman is in fine form in the four concertos that make up Vivaldiā€™s unavoidable masterpiece, and he secures excellent, if rather full-bodied, support from the LPO. This disc is recommendable for those wanting a modern-instrument version focussing on a star soloist, and theextra three concertos certainly make it good value.David Michaels
