Ron,

The violin soloist on the Bruch is Salvatore Accardo, with the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig. It's a Philips 2 CD set 289 462 164-2.

Accardo is worth listening to anyway, playing anything. I can imagine that some soloists make this piece into something overdone and melodramatic, but this rendition is brilliant - although I have never heard anyone else's version of it.
