Notes and Editorial Reviews

Among the most impressive aspects of this set is its consistency. Accardo was a pupil of Nathan Milstein, Yvonne Astruc (herself an Enescu student) and Luigi d'Ambrosio, and he combines a very high level of virtuosity with a sweetly singing tone that is always maintained despite the torrent of executive problems. This particular balance of qualities, essential for Paganini, has been met before of course, but what is unusual is that it is matched by the accompanimental playing. The orchestra is, no doubt, larger than the composer had in mind, yet Dutoit gets the LPO to play with the verve and fire this very Italian music needs.
