It is also one that is rather unusual for its coupling of the brahms and korngold violin concertos, but a coupling that makes sense, if merely to emphasize the strong viennese character of the composers, their respective scores, and of the musicians participating in this recording
Znaider's interpretation of the brahms violin concerto is by far the most lyrical i have heard
As for the korngold violin concerto itself, not only does znaider emphasizes the lyrical qualities of the score - whose main themes were taken from some of korngold's classic 1930s hollywood film scores - but gives such a commanding, persuasive, interpretation of it that, by itself, should be regarded as among the very best ever committed to disk
In valery gergiev and the wiener philharmoniker, znaider is superbly supported by these superb collaborators with whom he's developed an unusually strong, close relationship
