Peter Tchaikovsky (1840-1893): Violin Concerto in D major, Op. 35. Itzhak Perlman (violin), Philadelphia Orchestra; conductor: Eugene Ormandy. This recording documents the fruitful, long-standing relationship between Ormandy and the Philadelphia Orchestra. From 1936 to 1980, Ormandy shaped this orchestra into a fine instrument which set standards particularly in its performances of late-Romantic and early 20th-century music. Israeli-born violinist Itzhak Perlman began his career in the United States and is widely acclaimed both as a chamber musician and as a soloist with the world's leading orchestras. Recorded in 1979 at the Academy of Music, Philadelphia.
