Review By Penguin Guide,January 2009

Milstein first recorded the Tchaikovsky in Chicago in March 1940 with Frederick Stock, an underrated maestro. It is a more classical reading than his later versions, though the finale is remarkably dashing tour de force on the part of soloist and orchestra. The recording is also very fine, for at this time American Columbia had begun to record on to 33 1/3 rpm lacquer master discs. The recordings sound as well as 1950s early tape masters. This may nit be Milstein’s best account of the Tchaikovsky, but it has a lot going for it, and comes with two superb performances of the Bruch and Mendelssohn Concertos.
