His tone quality is unusual
ly robust and soulful. He knows
how to arch a melodic line so
that it soars far above the
everyday world, enticing lis-
teners with uniquely spiritual
insights.
He digs deeply into the re-
current melancholy in
Shostakovich's somber concer-
to, exposing its painful beauty.
He captures the acid wit
Prokofiev scatters through his
concerto without ignoring its
more tender moments. He de-
lights in displaying the
Glazunov concerto's melodic in-
ventiveness.
But it is in the ever-popular
Tchaikovsky concerto that
Vengerov works his most as-
tonishing magic. Until now, my
most cherished recording of this
concerto featured Vengerov's
teacher's teacher, Igor Ois-
trakh, with his famous violin-
ist-father, David Oistrakh, on
the podium.
After listening to Vengerov's
performance (most ably backed
up by Abbado and the
Berlingers), Igor and his father
have slipped to second place.
Besides, as far as I know, no
young women ever fought over
Igor's bow hairs. ❑
