    Default Bruch violinconcerto no 1- favourite recording

    I have fallen in love with this concerto! I have spotify, an there are up to hundred recordings. I will lay some effort in finding some really good recordings and post them here!

    A lot of listening to do, but it will be a pleasure!

    In the meantime... maybe you have a favourite recording? Or several? Tell about it here!

    Default Arve tellefsen

    I will start with this recording. Arve Tellefsen. Our natianal violinist here in norway! He is also known for breaking his violin in two in pure joy when Lillehammer got the winter olympics in 94! ( It was a planned stunt, so he did not brake his several hundred thousand stradivarius).

    But listen to this! A lot of warmth in the violin! Not overplaying... well me and describing music... But the violin touches me deeply... Not listened to it all yet...Shhhhh, let me listen



    If you have spotify:
    http://open.spotify.com/album/1N8s4TU6yg4yjA6m6VRXO1

    The downside..the beginning of the finale.. He dont play it as good as I want to here it.

    Yes, I love this work as well and have listened to it many times! - my favourite recording is Heifetz (stereo recording) and I also have and enjoy Kyung-Wha Chung's version as well and this is also one of my first classical purchases :

    I own three:

    Favourite: James Ehnes, Montreal Symphony, Dutoit conducting. I think this was the last recording of Dutoit with the MSO, and the penultimate made at St-Eustache. Here, Bruch 1 is coupled with Bruch 3. A second recording made a year later couples Bruch 2 and the Scottish Fantasy, MSO but Mario Bernardi conducts, the last St-Eustache recording. These were under CBC Records, and that explains Bernardi coming in to finish the set, as Dutoit had just resigned. Thus, these recordings are about 10 years old.

    Favouritye vinyl: Josef Suk, Czech Philharmonic with Karl Ancerl conducting. Coupled with Mendelssohn E minor.

    Honourable mention: Cho-Liang Lin, Chicago Symphony, Slatkin conducts. Coupled with Scottish Fantasy.

    I would strongly recommend Yehudi Menuhin. I bought it for the Mendelssohn but I have enjoyed the Bruch even more. I think he has really captured the heart of the music and I can not think of a better version.

    Heifetz and Oistrakh various recordings are all magnificant. I didn't listen to that one which Igor Oistrakh plays as soloist while his father conducting the royal philharmonic orchestra, but I find the couple (Igor and father) always lovely !
    I have listened also to an old recording by Georg Kulenkampff with Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Joseph Keilberth, and I enjoyed it.

    I've listened to all the ones suggested here, but I'm still in favour of my current recording: Midori & Jansons.

    I am surprised nobody has mentioned Salvatore Accardo's terrific recording of the complete Violin Concertos... he is sublime and recognized as the Bruch violinist to beat.

    On amazon.com, no less than 19 people have reviewed the Philips recording, and the average was 5-stars!!
