Extractions: The Concerto in D minor for two violins, the next work scheduled for discussion, is one of the most famous and popular of all Bach's music. The slow movement is invariably included on any compilation of 'The Best of Bach', 'Essential Bach', 'Romantic Bach', 'Bach Adagios' etc and it often represents Bach on more general compilations of classical music. On the Naxos Website you can hear performances by Kojla Blacher and Lisa Stewart with the Cologne Chamber Orchestra (8.554603) and by the sixteen year old Yehudi Menuhin recorded in 1932 with George Enescu and Pierre Monteux (8.110965).

Extractions: Vox Allegretto ACD 8207 1996 ADD 58:01 Rosand brought to this enterprise a rich, buttery tone, which he nevertheless deployed with the austerity of a Cistercian monk (it may have been this chasteness that Milstein so admired). His somewhat heavy bow arm was coupled with a solid left-hand technique (reminiscent of Paganini's foil, Spohr), complementing an unerring sense of pitch. He had a tendency like David Oistrakh's to slow down in technical passages, adding extra weight to them, and a flair for the occasional dramatic, even eccentric, gesture. But the underlying virtuoso excitement of a Heifetz, a Milstein - or even a Szigeti - was always lacking; taking its place was the kind of benign placidity that now puts the final dehumanizing touch on the younger generation of contest winners. If it's there at all, Rosand's "ultra-romanticism" lies buried in the phrases and sentences, not in the paragraphs and chapters. Still, Rosand is always worth hearing. He is not faceless like the generation of violinists that succeeded him. And he never fails to turn in a well-crafted, polished performance. He certainly doesn't fail to do so in these reissues of the Mendelssohn and Tchaikovsky violin concertos, originally recorded in 1972. Like most of his readings, these are rich in detail - he has discovered poetic moments in the Tchaikovsky's slow movement where others have found only prose, and he is commanding in the finale in passages where others are perfunctory. The Mendelssohn concerto is harder to personalize without risking mannerism; and, despite his reputation, Rosand on the whole is a classical rather than a mannered player.
