    so it's the runaway leader in the "value-for-money" category.

    I have a pretty special version by Michael Rabin & the Philadelphia Orchestra...
    but it's part of the dozen-disc "Centennial Collection" by that ensemble.

    I like Vadim Gluzman with Andrew Litton on BIS

    B0012P70U0

    The recording are top-notch (the violin isn't sharp and you can hear all the semi-tones) and Gluzmans' playing very good too. And Glazunov's concert as a bonus.

    Joshua Bell/Cleveland Orch/Ashkenazy. The sound is full and the tempi are just right!

    Janine Jansen is great in this concerto. She has a very good technique and her phrasing is moving. Some people think that her playing is just "too much", but when I think of Tchaikovsky I think it is required to play passionately.
    Give it a try.

    I like Perlman's recording with Eugene Ormandy conducting the Philadelphia Orchestra.

    Of the different versions I have heard or own I really enjoy this 1982 version with Kyung Wha Chung. It's just simply amazing. It gets a five star rating on Amazon as well.

    Commercial stuff as awful Sarasate's Czardas....requiring a very fast violin...He played really fast.

    Martin, probably wrong
    All violinists from Kreisler to Campoli to Szeryng, etc,usw, play this stuff I love it.

    Are there other versions you would suggest? I'm thinking about Arthur Grumiaux right now.

    Thanks!
    The first LP I ever heard or bought was Ruggiero Ricci and the New Symphony Orchestra of London (whatever!!) on British Decca's (London) first 50 issue. It accompanied me in the army across the world and it flattened me. They redid it in 1965 in stereo with the LSO. I don't think it stopped there. Ricci is ,to me at least, the equal of Heifetz in the virtuoso stakes but with more heart. I also have the Leonid Kogan/Paris Conservatoire/Silvestri and the Nathan Milstein/Pittsburgh/Steinberg these are my preferred choices but I have others including the Elman reissued on Naxos Historical, this is the joy of Naxos but is it a fact that you cannot buy these everywhere? I'm sorry I don't have anything more up to date---don't really need it do I?

    That first LP above was conducted by Sir Malcolm Sargent.

    I am surprised that the name Perlman is not on the list - maybe I did not see it

    I know this is a zombie thread but my favorite is Stern. But here is a very interesting and enjoyable alternative:

    http://www.amazon.com/Exquisite-Arti.../dp/B000VDDI5K

    The concerto is played on trumpet by an artist everyone has heard but noone recognizes. Plus a little Zappa thrown in!
