Sarah Chang is a non-nonsense kind of a performer. She has tecnique and she has great musical common-sense. No wonder she is so succesful in her career. Perhaps not a musical genius, but a very fine violinist nontheless. Her Paganini is exactly what it needs to be: Direct, clean, fast, with big sound. The recording itself sounds great and Sawallisch is a great accompanist. The Havanaise is a bit to stiff for my taste, however. Nevertheless, still enjoyable.

Um, I am currently a high school student and I can play the D major Paganini, especially the Adagio, as well as her. The guy that posted second is exactly right. This is not a classical piece but rather a romantic piece, so flare up that wide vibrato and stop being so strict and technical. Yes, I agree, technicallity is a great thing, but musicallity will win someone's heart.
Also, Introduction to Rondo and Cap. is a lovely piece. I don't agree with her interpretation, especially the beginning. The concertmaster of our orchestra played this piece last year, and I would rather listen to her (it helps I know this person though).

I have been a fan of sarah for a long time now...I live in hawaii and she came here to do a concert and i was just amazed then i became interested in her. This recording has everything, fabulous technique, amazing emotions, and it just melts your heart away. I am a young violinist myself and i have been looking up to Miss Chang, Mr. Perlman and more but this recording is absolutely great.
The paganini concerto is absolutely advanced and i've played the third movement before and i cant play the first but sarah makes u believe that she is nicolo paganini and its just brilliant.
The reason i bought this cd was for the saint-saens and it's just amazing. I especially love the introduction because she plays so well and effortlessly. I have played the introduction before but not as well as her. She amazes me more everyday. I dont know what u guys are talking bout..giving her a 3 star out of 5. If you can do better i would like to hear it...
one word for this cd...FABULOUS

Yes, yes, I know she has great technique. But technique only serves to emphasize musicianship in a player, a quality that she is shockingly without in the Paganini concerto. This is a wonderful piece, it's like the Italian version to Arthur Sullivan's scores for the G&S operette, it's rollicking good fun. It's a humorous, passionate piece that can't be taken completely seriously. But Sarah Chang misses that point. She doesn't understand what this piece is about the way that Pearlman does. But she plays it like Mozart! It's all wrong! Absolutely wrong! I just listen to this thing and think about how stunning wrong it is! The bowing is much too light and serious; she needs to get into the string and bring out the passion, but more importantly, the great *wit* of the composition! Sarah Chang has no idea how cute and fun this concerto is!

This is a great CD, I think one of Sarah Chang's best. The Paganini concerto is precise and clear, without a missed note. (The orchestra also does a wonderful job here.) But the real reasons to buy this CD are the Saint-Saens pieces, Havanaise and Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso. Wow. Amazing. The Havanaise is haunting in the slower sections, just beautiful. Chang displays a maturity in this piece not often heard from 13-year-old musicians. And the Introduction and Rondo is even better, albeit in a different way. The piece is terribly exciting with its violin fireworks, and Chang plays flawlessly. I own several recordings of the Introduction and Rondo and this is by far the very best of them all. Even if you don't like Sarah Chang or classical music in particular, I highly recommend this CD.
