“Lin’s is a straightforward, expressive reading of the concerto, distinguished by extraordinarily beautiful playing. Bruch was a melodist of the first rank, and the soloist emphasizes that aspect of the music in his warmly phrased account.” — Ted Libbey, The NPR Guide to Building a Classical CD Collection

Violinist Cho-Liang Lin and conductor Leonard Slatkin join the Chicago Symphony Orchestra for performances of beautiful, yet lesser-known, violin masterpieces by Max Bruch. Recorded in the historic Medinah Temple, the soloist and orchestra present delightfully warm playing paired with the clean precision one comes to expect of the legendary CSO.
