Notes and Editorial Reviews

This is a hybrid Super Audio CD playable on both regular and Super Audio CD players.

"Another splendid quadraphonic remastering from Pentatone. The solo violin in particular is beautifully captured, balanced perhaps just a little ahead of what might be a normal "concert hall" perspective, but not obtrusively so - orchestral detail is in no way occluded…..In short, highly recommended. Thank you Pentatone - keep those quad remasters coming!"

Terence, SA-CD.net

"Szeryng, performing in the 1970s in surround sound, brings the explosively virtuosic First Violin Concerto to life…. Szeryng’s violin palpitates as well as sings, the line ever extended upward, finally over a halo of
Read more harp-like strings….. The surround sound effect proves quite luscious as the LSO strings and Szeryng’s soaring tessitura mix or collide as Paganini sees fit."

Gary Lemco, Audiophile Audition
