Sibelius, Violin Concerto. MAXIM VENGEROV,  with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra conducted by Daniel Barenboim. Taped in Cologne, Germany, 1997. Many consider him the current champ of the instrument. This performance has the power and assurance of Heifetz and the sweetness of Kreisler. It's not my favorite interpretation; he seems to master all the individual  effects but not the long line. This is power playing; a performance built of beautiful parts. Still, amazing virtuosity. (KevinR@Ky)
