One of the best
Ruth W. Stidger | Dallas, TX USA | 03/01/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you enjoy violin or piano, you need to buy and watch this DVD. The skill and passion of both soloists provides an evening you won't forget and will soon want to repeat. Camera work is exceptional, showing fingering during Vengerov's fabulous performance of the Violin Conerto in D Major and also Sultanov's flashing hands as he performs the Piano Concerto No. 1. The Moscow State Symphony Orchestra is excellent as is Pavel Kogan's conducting."
Could be better

(4 out of 5 stars)

"Both of these young virtuosos (at the time of the taping Vengerov was either 16 or 17) give an excellent performance of their respective concertos. In fact, I think Vengerov's tone in this concerto is often superior to his subsequent performance of the Sibelius concerto (also on DVD) done 7 years later, although his technical ability has obviously improved as there are a few miscues here and there. The audio and video are good, but one of the camera angles makes this DVD a 4 star rather than a 5. The tight shot of Vengerov is horrible. He moves around a lot while playing and the shot ends up going back and forth from his face to his violin to his fingers. In fact, the cameraman was trying to move back and forth with Vengerov and ended up looking like an amateur being faked out by a quarterback in a football game. Whoever edited this video really blew it here. Other than that I highly recommend this DVD."
Great Recording

"Sound quality is absolutely among the best in any DVD recording of this type. I disagree to any complaints on the sound quality. Recording of the Piano Concerto is exceptionally impressive. Never have had this kind of sound effect on any of my DVD's. However, I do agree to some criticism that the pianist may be a little bit nervous. Consider the age of the artist, I still rate this DVD a 5 star."
Great Violin Concerto...but strange piano sound

(4 out of 5 stars)

"Maxim Vengerov does an incredible job with the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto, rivalling the legendary David Oistrakh in this attempt. However something seems to be wrong with Sultanov's Tchaikovsky Piano concerto. the piano sound seems very hollow and not very clean and that's really weird. Another reason i do not give 5 stars is that the conductor isn't very supportive and sometimes Vengerov gets rushed by the orchestra, which is a little irritating."
