To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
As performances, these are yet to be beat. No one has come close in the Piano Concerto, even Browning himself when he re-recorded it with Slatkin. Stern's is also at the top of the heap of recordings of the Violin Concerto. The only drawback is that the sound is beginning to show its age.
