"Mozart: Violin Concertos Nos. 3 and 4." Frank Peter Zimmermann, soloist. Angel/EMI. DDD. The 21-year-old Zimmermann presents himself in this debut recording as a violinist with ample technique, lush tone and a broad vibrato. After a while, the latter tends to weigh down this airy music, noticeably in the Third Concerto's magical Adagio. Joerg Faerber respectfully leads the Wuerttemberg Chamber Orchestra--not the greatest band, but one decent enough to provide a sympathetic accompaniment. Meanwhile, the violinist seems content to let the music unfold without the aid of significant artistic insights. 1/2
