This recording of Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto Op. 35 documents the
fruitful, long-standing relationship between conductor Eugene Ormandy and
the Philadelphia Orchestra. From 1936 to 1980, Ormandy shaped this
orchestra into a fine instrument which set standards particularly in its
performances of late-Romantic and early 20th-century music. Israeli-born
violinist Itzhak Perlman began his career in the United States and is
widely acclaimed both as a chamber musician (with Barenboim and others)
and as a soloist with the world's leading orchestras.
