I can't believe how cheap this CD issue is. Grab it while you can.
Ginette Neveu was one of the world's greatest violinists -- not just amongst the most promising, but already amongst the world's greatest -- when she died, in her 20s, when the plane taking her on a tour of South America slammed into the side of a mountain.
In her brief recording career she recorded only two concertos, the Brahms and Sibelius, and of all the transcriptions from the 78s I've heard, this Brahms is the cleanest and the most vital in sound. The 'official' EMI CD of this recording is dull and stodgy in its soundscape by comparison, with all vestiges of life drained from it.
There is also a very good Acanta label recording taken from a live concert -- I would seek that as a supplement.
Dutton have also released the Sibelius concerto on another CD -- I hope they've done as good a transfer job with that, as I've just ordered that disc !
On this disc, the Brahms is presented alonside a few shorter 'encore' style items, in which she's often accompanied by her pianist brother, who also died in the plane crash.
Her premature death was a great loss to the world of music. You can see as well as hear her, in the brilliant Warner Video DVD 'The Art of Violin' -- I've got the Region Four edition of that, and it is being issued soon in the States.
