    This piece helps with my depression and anxiety. Whenever I am baraged with non-stop negative thoughts, this is the only piece that stops those voices. I don't know why but thank you Beethoven.

      A ending and a start of anything any time! Yes, truly sublime.
      I'm old enough to remember Karajan and the Berlin Philharmonic when he was at his sexiest. His dramatic quality was indisputable but i always found his tempi at tad frenzied. Younger musicians and conductors understand that Beethoven is best just on a tad slower tempo.
      This performance is unsurpassed.
      The more I listen to it the more tears just flow: happy, complex, most fulfilling tears.

    Absolute genius, demonstrating the phenomena we call the human brain. Marvel at how the brain of that man can remember exactly the hundreds of thousands on notes, played in exactly the right sequence, for exactly the right duration and how that brain can control the fingers and hands to reproduce perfectly each note. Appreciate the orchestra doing the same. Appreciate the brain of the composer who imagined and transformed imagination into dots, lines and squiggles that others can see and whose eyes send signals to brains that replicate the music. Enjoy the sheer beauty and miracle of it all. Rejoice that we are blest with the same brain. Get excited by the many other musicians playing every kind of instrument that do the same. Marvel at the distinction between animals who rely on instinct and humans that have intellect and you soon realise what a miracle mankind really is, in every discipline to which we apply ourselves. Music it is, outstanding at that, but it's so much more. It is actually a miracle that we take for granted. Marvel at technology that enables simple, ordinary people like myself to sit at home watching and listening to things I would hardly ever be able to otherwise. we have much to be truly grateful for. Then marvel at those who are so bereft of the ability to appreciate it all and need to send a thumbs down sign, it beggars belief. Thanks for posting

      @andy scott Yes, Psalm 139 is one of my favorite ones. He sure enjoys intimate friendship with his Creator. He can feel his Father's regard and care surrounding him every minute, from the day he was an embryo (v. 16), when he was made in secret (v. 15), and all the parts of this phoetus were written in God's book even before they were formed (DNA?). Such wonderful knowledge leads the psamlist to entreat his God to search through his heart and care for his anxious thoughts and uproot any harmful hidden feeling, so that he does not get astray from the good path.

    Another answered prayer when the RU-clip algorithm dropped this amazing, soul-stirring selection into my feed. I really needed this. I was raised on classical music from as far back as I can remember. On Saturday and Sunday mornings my father would have the radio tuned to Sunrise Symphony on WOR out of New York. This was back in the 1940's. Have always loved this piece. Once my parents were able to buy a console with a radio AND a phonograph, my father started collecting classical music on records so we could listen to that marvelous music any time. My aunt was a violinist and played with our community orchestra. Anytime there was a concert ANYWHERE near us (we lived in north Jersey) featuring a violin concerto, she would take me with her to hear it. I'm 78 years old now but I remember the first time Itzhak Perlman appeared on TV. He was introduced as a "new, young, violinist" on a level with some of the other recent virtuoso violinists. Don't remember which selection he played that day, but there was something about his music 🎶 that touched my heart and soul. I remember saying to my Dad that I knew he was going be one of the greatest violinists that ever lived. His sound was not like anyone elses. Being able to hear this tonight has been a true gift. This is my favorite violin concerto. It's too bad Beethoven didn't write more for the violin. But perhaps he felt he would never be able to equal this. If anything, Perlman's music has gotten so much sweeter with the years. Thank you again Itzhak and Beethoven.

    The way Barenboim controls the tempo is remarkable. You don't want it become quicker, especially in Beethoven's most intimate large scale work. This, of course, means that the rich tone must be maintained in slower tempi, which is very difficult.

    • Mary Vasilakakos
      Mary Vasilakakos Month ago +4

      Totally agree. The slower tempo is how it was meant to be played I think.
      Always found it fascinating that even Karajan went from frenetic tempi to slower ones as he got on. Ditto Claudio Arrau on the piano. Cheers

    I found a 4 CD Perlman set with this recording included when I was 18 and couldn’t afford the $50 price tag. It ended up the first gift I received from a beloved friend. I still have it 20 years later. Memorized every note. One of my treasured possessions.

    One of the best performances of Beethovens Violin Concerto by the best violinist. Well, how could this have ever been performed more beautifully, the conducting, the orchestra....time will remember this recording for as long as man shall live.

      I discovered this recording only a year ago, on Christmas Day when I had to spend it alone and was depressed. I was delighted to find that listening to Ihtzak accompanied by beautiful orchestras on RU-clip gave me one of the most enjoyable and uplifting Christmases ever! It lasted for about 5 hours that day non-stop! I'll never forget it.

    I think it’s the most beautiful of violin concertos (and there are so many to choose from). I played a recording of this concerto for my mother (it was he favourite) as she lay on her deathbed and I will never ever forget her reaction. It moved her to another place. Someplace only she new where😊❤️🙏

      I was listening this and other Pearlman music on my daily walks in Barcelona when we finally could go out in the spring 2020--- what I wasn't working with the covid pacientes on the ICU. This music kept my head straight and was for a great relief. Many thanks for uploading this and other works he played. Absolutely the most talented violinist together with the positive touch in his playing. Playing to us, for the sake of music, no showing off.

    This is, quite simply, the greatest concerto ever written. Much credit goes to Perlman, Barenboim and all the performers but the lion's share goes to Beethoven for this miracle of sound. It expresses the depth of the human spirit and the wonders of our intelligence. This is man at his best.

      I’ve been a big fan of Tchaikovsky’s violin concerto… still am. But Beethoven’s concerto is brilliant and brings a similar emotion. Perlman is a master and I always enjoy listening to his play.

      ​@Jack of all trades Oh, I cannot agree with you more. To me this piece is the greatest music on earth so heavenly. It encompasses the grandeur of universe and reaches the deepest of human feelings and living spirit. But for 30 years I find almost no people sharing my view:-)

      Ja, da bin ich mit Jack völlig einer Meinung.Das ist das beste Violinkonzert, das je geschrieben wurde. Ein absolutes Meisterstück von Beethoven. Und mit welcher Perfektion es von Perlman, Barenboim und dem ganzen Orchester präsentiert wird ist ebenfalls einmalig schön. Und danke an RU-clip, dass ich es immer wieder Genüssen darf
