The first time I heard this concerto, this was the recording. I had the cassette tape. I would listen late at night and...and...it had such an effect on me. The Philadelphia was at the height of its power and beauty -- silken strings, a bloom on the brass, woodwinds with such clarity. Mr. Rose gets the job done here, though his tone is a bit restricted. Not as broad, deep, or resonant as I've heard by others since. But I like this whole thing here very much.
