Everybody knows the famous recording of Beethovens violin concerto Kennedy made together with the Berliner Philharmoniker. This is another fine example how well Kennedy and this orchestra can inspire each other. You don't need to say much about Kennedy as soloist (it would mean carrying coal to Newcastle). Either you like him, or not. But the other two soloists are very good as well.
