Live in Berlin, 1948 (Bach) o studio-recording, Berlin, 1949/1951 Tchaikovsky - Mozart - Bach: These benchmarks in Menuhin's repertoire are presented on this CD in exemplary interpretations. His take on Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto is structurally clear and striking in its declamation. In Mozart's D major Concerto he accentuates the tension between formal classicity and expressional subjectivity. Bach's Chaconne is presented not as a deduction from a theme but as a circling approach towards the fundamental idea. The recordings is further enhanced by great musical concurrence with the conductors: Ferenc Fricsay, whom Menuhin admired greatly as an artist and as a person, and Karl Böhm, whose ideals in Mozart interpretation he shared.
