    I think your violinist is Viktoria Mullova.

    Mendelssohn Violin Concerto - BBC Proms - Royal Albert Hall
    Orquesta Simfonica de Barcelona i Nacional de Catalunya/Foster
    24th July 2002
    “With Viktoria Mullova inflecting her fine-spun tone by the most sparing use of portamenti and sensitive gradations of vibrato, and Foster responding with the deftest of rhythms and textures, this had the contained intentness, almost, of chamber music.”
    Bayan Northcott, The Independent, 30 July 2002

    A fine violinist, married to conductor André Previn.

    Check out her Tchaikovsky and her Paganini (sometime ago I played her 1st movement cadenza over and over, and over again... I love the final pizzicatto before the thrills on double stops)

    You mean this one: on eBay at $12.60 is a crazy price? Seems kinda par for great music on CD's these days ... at least imho.

    It's on the Philips label, recorded in May 2003.

    I'd pay $12.60 every day of the week and twice on Sunday for music CD's in my region of the country - anything under $15 for me is a steal
