A Must have recording.

Sarah Chang is the star here. She does a beautiful job on the Dvorak Violin Concerto. She is an artist to keep up with.

I really ordered this for the Piano Quintet. A bit of trivia not mentioned in the notes, this contains the theme music from a Post World War II movie, “The Boy With Green Hair”. Very sensitive and sentimental. The performance is great. See the movie on Turner Classic Movies or American Classic Movies when they show it.
