Notes and Editorial Reviews

Endre Wolf was born in Hungary, but spend his life in Sweden where he quickly became the leading violinist of his generation. For years he was concert master with the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra and at the same time had an extensive soloist career. At some point in the 1950s he was teaching at the Manchester University in England and gave numerous concerts all over the UK and broadcasted extensively through BBC. However, his rarest and most valuable recordings were done in Sweden and they are here collected for the first time including private and off-the-air recordings painstakingly transferred and thoroughly annotated by leading musicologist Carl-Gunnar Åhlén. Not only solo performance with Endre Wolf in his prime are here Read more included, but also duo recordings plus many violin concertos, most recorded for the first time. A collection of the highest interest to all lovers and connoisseurs of the violin. Read less
