i promise not to give away the end of this movie! ;-)-

in the performing arts (theater, sports, music), there is always the question of today vrs. yesterday, of tomorrow vrs. yesteryear.

(are the actors of today in 'cat on a hot tin roof' up to the standards of paul newman or tommie lee jones? or are they better?? shaq vrs. wilt? eric dickerson vrs. jim brown? eddie van halen vrs. chuck berry)

perlman is of the old school, and he is at his mature best in this recording. this alone qualifies this as an historical document, and it is worth it, believe me. this guy brings a mature vision to this piece, and it's wonderful.

new versions of this marvelous work await us, but as far as they could go, they really played great.

the sound is ok, the orchestra is fine, but the star of this one is perlman, and his bringing to a culmination all the old ideas. he plays with all the great ideas of tradition. he also plays with all the outdated ideas of vibrato that still exsist on this planet.

we should check this recording out. we should admire it, and appreciate it. we must not venerate it, because it should be, and will be , surpassed. but it is really really good for what it is.
