Szeryng’s lordly and serene account of the Beethoven Concerto, one of the great musical monuments of the Philips catalogue, will be remembered with reverence and affection as one of a handful of truly great recordings of this work. Digitally revitalised, it emerges with renewed vitality and depth, with the unhurried splendour of Szeryng’s playing the more astonishing for its tonal beauty and ferocity of vision. A hallmark of Szeryng’s Beethoven was his lifelong espousal of the Joachim cadenzas – in themselves a welcome alternative to the more familiar Kreisler offerings. The two Romances are more ravishing than ever without the veiled antiquity of LP sound to contend with. An indispensable recording. Performance: 5 (out of 5), Sound: 5 (outRead more of 5)
