Interesting! I switched on and heard the first movement of the Medelssohn vln concerto. No idea who was playing for a while. I found it good but not earth moving, a little dodgy intonation here an there, some to my ears strange phrasing, and by the end of the movement rather a scrabble for the final chord. By this time I thought it might be James Ehenes - and it was.
I'm normally a great fan of his and was hoping to go to his Wigmore recital coming up soon, as I did last year, but not sure now as I'm having a dispute with the Wigmore Hall's pricing and ticket policy, which I think is crazy. But I may change my mind.
Perhaps, like a lot of top players, JE is doing too much, and would benefit from a bit more time off? There is no doubt about his potential abilities.
