Notes and Editorial Reviews

Violinist David Nadien is better known among his fellow string players and orchestral colleagues than to the public at large, yet he's been heard everywhere. Nadien served as concertmaster of the New York Philharmonic from 1966 through 1970 and appeared as soloist with that orchestra more than 30 times between 1941 and 1971. This collection showcases Nadien's stylish way with cherished encore-type repertoire that Kreisler and Heifetz did better than anybody. Well, almost anybody. Nadien's luscious tone, impeccable technique, wide color palate, and unerring taste ennobles chestnuts like Elgar's Salut d'amour, Kroll's Banjo and Fiddle, plus Sarasate and Kreisler perennials. The violinist dispatches Paganini's Moto Perpetuo as if it were Read more child's play, and dusts the cobwebs off Mendelssohn's On Wings of Song and Rubinstein's Melody in F, making them sound new and even relevant. No discographical information about these recordings is given. They seem to come from private tapes or lacquers, given the listenable but variable sonics from piece to piece. Boris Barere, son of legendary pianist Simon Barere, sensitively partners Nadien. In short, fiddle aficionados should grab this disc, while they can. [11/8/2000]
