  • I so much love his wonderful violin concert which is in my opinion the most important violin concert of the late romantic period. It connects the late romantic period with the modern Contemporary Music. My 2 reference recordings of the Sibelius Violin Concert are of course the great David Oistrach with the Philadelphia Orchestra conducted by Eugene Ormandy and in second place the fantastic Nigel Kennedy with the London Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Okku Kamu.I know alot of other recordings but no other beats this two recordings.
