It doesn't get much more entertaining than this! Korngold's concerto was composed for Heifetz, who made a sensational (mono) recording of it back in the early 1950s. Dismissed at the time by music critics as a piece of sentimental schlock, it's now rightly regarded as a masterpiece, and it was this recording that did the trick. Coupled with the attractive Goldmark concerto, this disc provides eloquent testimony of Perlman's work on behalf of unjustly neglected repertoire and remains among his most important and delightful releases. --David Hurwitz
