Notes and Editorial Reviews

This infectious recital comprised part of Mintz's recording debut in 1981 and very entertaining it is, backed by a recording that is realistically full of presence.

...Returning to Galleria, let me recommend without reservations a splendidly played and recorded Shlomo Mintz recital with Clifford Benson of Kreisler encores, including all his most famous pieces, such as Caprice viennoise, Liebesleid, Liebesfreud and Tambourin chinois, plus arrangements and pastiches of music by Albeniz, Weber, Wieniawski, Dvorak, Glazunov and others. This infectious recital comprised part of Mintz's recording debut for DG in 1981 and very entertaining it is, backed by a recording that is realistically full of presence.
