Brahms / Violin Concerto - Milstein / Steinberg

  (Item #: brahmvioli) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Orchestral Music Hall of Fame.

Another nice Milstein record with exquisite violin tone. Of course the performance is magical. The massed strings are lovely here. Lots of hall, big spacious sound, and of course a violin to die for.

Dvorak & Glazounov - Violin Concertos - Milstein

Cisco Reviewed

  (Item #: dvoravioli_cisco) 



Sonic Grade: B or so

Some of the sweetest violin tone on heavy vinyl you will ever hear. For Heavy Vinyl this one gets a very high recommendation. The domestic originals we've played have been uniformly awful so pick up this Cisco pressing wherever you can find it if the price is right, assuming you can stand the lack of ambience and resolution that Heavy Vinyl consistently suffers from. To be honest, we have not played this record in many years and would probably like it much less now than we did at the time of its release.

Dvorak & Glazounov / Violin Concertos - Milstein

Hopelessly Outclassed by the Stereo LP

  (Item #: dvoravioli_milstein_mono) 



Stick with stereo on this album. The Mono pressings -- at least the ones we've played -- aren't worth anybody's time (scratch that: any audiophile's time).

Here are some other records that we don't think sound very good in MONO.

Here are some we think can sound amazing in MONO.

JS Bach / Sonatas & Partitas / Milstein / 3 LP Box Set

Not Recommended

  (Item #: bach_son) 


This DG Italian Import 3 LP Box Set used to impress us for sonics but now, in 2014, it sounds like a good -- but not good enough to recommend -- DG pressing. Pick it up for cheap if you like these works, otherwise it's probably advisable to pass.

Milstein / Encores / Pommers

Reviewed in 2009

  (Item #: variomilst_2009) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Orchestral Music Hall of Fame.

This original Rainbow Label Capitol pressing has D1 / D1 stampers (!) and the shrink still on the cover -- now how rare is that!? Copies in this condition regularly fetch $300-400 on ebay these days, some as much as $450, and it's highly unlikely that any of those sound as good as this one. (Unless those sellers use the same advanced cleaning fluids and techniques we do and have access to an $8000 record cleaning machine that is.)

The sound is SUPERB, especially on side two, which we rated A Double Plus. Side two had a bit more presence and transparency than side one and that, along with quieter vniyl, kicked the grade up a notch. The third work on side two, a piece by Fritz Kreisler, is one of the highlights of the entire album.

Milstein / Master pieces / Susskind

Reviewed in 2013

  (Item #: variomaste_2013) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Orchestral Music Hall of Fame.

This is a RARE and WONDERFUL SOUNDING original Capitol pressing of Milstein playing pieces for violin and orchestra by Mozart, Beethoven, Stravinsky, Saint-Saens and others. The recording of the Mozart Rondo on side one boasts DEMO DISC quality sound. Side one is amazingly rich, sweet and tubey magical. The violin is tonally correct, with the kind of immediacy few violin records (in our experience) manage to capture as well, while still retaining the correct size of the instrument.

Music of Old Russia / Milstein / Irving

Our Shootout Winner from 2013

  (Item #: tchaimusic_2013) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Orchestral Music Hall of Fame.

This rare, hard to find original Blue Angel stereo pressing has exquisite sound. As we noted in our listing for Milstein's Saint-Saens Third, it is the rare Heifetz album on Shaded Dog (or any other label) that could hope to compete with it.

We would rank this Angel recording/pressing with the best of Rabin and Milstein on Capitol, as well as the wonderful Ricci and Campoli discs on London/Decca.

The transparency of both sides lets you "see" the orchestra clearly, without sacrificing richness or weight.

Prokofiev / Violin Con. #1 & Lalo / Symphonie Espagnole - Milstein

Reviewed in 2008

  (Item #: prokovioli_milstein_2008) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Orchestral Music Hall of Fame.

This fairly nice Milstein record has exquisite violin tone and of course the performance is magical. These comments only apply to the Lalo on side two. (Side one never sounds good on this album.)

Saint-Saens / Violin Con #3 & Chausson / Poeme - Milstein

Our Shootout Winner from 2013

  (Item #: saintviol3_2013) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Orchestral Music Hall of Fame.

This White Hot Stamper original Blue Angel pressing has some of the most exquisite sound for a violin/orchestral recording we have ever heard here at Better Records. I do not think there is any Heifetz album on RCA Shaded Dog (or otherwise) to compete with it. We would rank this Angel recording/pressing with the best of Rabin and Milstein on Capitol, as well as the wonderful Ricci and Campoli discs on London/Decca. In other words, this is one of the best sounding violin-led orchestral recordings we have yet to play, and we've played them by the hundreds and hundreds. (Practice makes perfect they say.)
