Editors’ Notes Itzhak Perlman rose quickly to the ranks of the violin world's greats, and soon was working his way through the great concertos and major sonatas to huge acclaim. His absolute technical mastery, perfect intonation, and effortless style make him a treasurable musician. His recordings of the Beethoven and Brahms violin concertos with Giulini are highly prized, and his set of the Beethoven sonatas with Ashkenazy is a classic. An early Decca recording of the Franck Violin Sonata coupled with the Brahms Horn Trio remains unbeatable.
