Notes and Editorial Reviews

Not 'purple passages', not 'hundred best tunes', not 'classics to relax with'! This release is a selection of some of the most magic moments - whole movements in every case - of some of the greatest and most popular, tuneful concertos played by some of the greatest twentieth century artists. It is the essence of the violin concerto, for that desert island! And all in completely re-furbished transfers. Not 'purple passages', not 'hundred best tunes', not 'classics to relax with'!
