Notes and Editorial Reviews

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

"As you will know if you have ever heard the wonderful performance of the Violin Concerto that he made around 40 years ago with Colin Davis and the New Philharmonia, Grumiaux is a consummate Brahmsian, his purity of tone allied with an aristocratic elegance of phrasing and a total technical command, and his partner here, György Sebök, matches him every step of the way, the two together achieving prodigies of seemingly spontaneous élan."

-- Bernard Jacobson, FANFARE
