Her Sibelius is of the standard Julliard-type. One cannot really blame her for not giving a personalized interpretation of this work; after all, it's been recorded over 50 times, and it's becoming increasingly difficult to form an individual interpretation, especially when most of today's young players are taught to remain faithful to the score. I did not adore her tone recorded in this live concert--a bit harsh in my opinion. Her technique was near-perfect.
I'd like to point out one place in the first movt. of the Sibelius where I thought her rendition was the best ever. It's right before the coda, the twelve measures before no. 11 of the score, this very long trill of an A. The soloist's and orchestra's playing of crescendo and diminuendo are in perfect unity. The soloist's sound nearly disappears when the orchestra plays pianissimo pizzicato. These compelling rise and fall in dynamics are not marked on the score.

I consider myself a Sibelius Violin Concerto connoisseur, and this has to be one of the worst recordings out there of the piece. Read morePublished on Sept. 1 2003 by Dwayne Brice
As much as I love Sarah Chang's playing, this disc is one that disappoints, the Mendelssohn especially. It is beautifully played, but the phrasings are very ordinary. Read morePublished on Feb. 4 2001 by P. Rah
i heard this recording, and have to say it is a most unremarkable performance by a most unremarkable performer. Read morePublished on April 25 2000
