Ce livre, qui raconte l'histoire d une enfance heureuse, comble une lacune : jusqu'ici, personne ne savait ce qu'il advient d'un enfant qui, profondément enraciné dans notre société et sa modernité, grandit loin de toute scolarisation, sans stress, sans compétition, sans programme préétabli ni référence à une quelconque moyenne. …
These are wonderful performances, full of the flair that made Stern famous. I was glad Sony chose this particular version of the Tchaikovsky with Ormandy and the Philadelphians for his "Life in Music" series, rather than Stern's later version with Berstein and the NYPO. This earlier recording captures Stern with more spontaneity and displays his virtuosity to greater effect. The faster passages of the Tchaikovsky are handled with ease, even at speeds faster than normally heard.
In another highly distinguished collaboration, the legendary Isaac Stern and Yefim Bronfman perform Mozart s mature violin sonatas over four CDs.

Leni Stern looks back on 13 years of a brilliant recorded legacy with Recollection, her tenth release as a leader and second for her own label. As well as featuring vintage material like an intimate duet with Bill Frisell from 1985's Clairvoyant, a track with David Sanborn from 1989's Closer To The Light and her boldest playing in the company of Dennis Chambers, Wayne Krantz and Lincoln Goines from 1991's Ten Songs, Recollection also includes new material that showcases her new more revealing vocal- oriented direction.
