Came across the above blog. The Sibelius Concerto is at No.4 but is the best recorded version really Leila Josefowiez with Academy of St. Martins in the Fields cond. by Sir Neville Marriner?--kp

What I can't get over is why Maxim Vengerov is the list's favorite recording of the Shosty. Rather than, say, Oistrakh. Or why the Beethoven concerto is #1 on the list.

But as for Sibelius...yeah. Why not Kavakos, Kuusisto, Heifetz, Neveu...? Then again, Leila Josefowicz is a superb violinist. She was the first soloist in Esa-Pekka Salonen's violin concerto. She knew it from memory by the first rehearsal, and she truly plays the hell out of it. So I wouldn't be too surprised if she made a knock-out Sibelius.

I'm not really worried about it my friend, just trying to get a thread going in the Sibelius 150 year Smile kp
