Violinist Mischa Elman is joined by the London Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Sir Adrian Boult for this recording of concertos by Bruch and Wieniawski.
"Elman treats the opening and closing movements of the Bruch expansively... this phrasing becomes more careful, more appropriate, and more interesting in the slow movement where the violinist seems more at home. Elman begins with reasonable liveliness, but slows down to project the lyrical second subject. Nevertheless, there is more flow and less choppiness here... The Romanze is particularly congenial to the violinist's talent; here he has a chance to sing with freedom of style and beauty of tone, and he takes full advantage of the opportunity." - High Fidelity
