Beethoven & Mendelssohn: Violin Concertos - Heifetz/Munch        (6 of 8 found this review helpful)
  Review by tream January 22, 2005

I am going to offer a different view on this recording than the other reviewers. First, the good news: the BSO plays magnificently, and my respect for Munch as a conductor continues to grow.(In my earler years I was much influenced by the writing of B.H.
