I purchased this set on CD as opposed to the download.

I was familiar with Vieuxtemps, through his 5th concerto (Mullova as soloist, paired with Paganini no.1)
I enjoyed this concerto so much and jumped immediately, when I saw the complete seven concertos were available.
For those who enjoy melodic, virtuosic music for violin and orchestra (and who doesn't !) these recordings will give a lot of pleasure.
The seven works have all a lot to offer the listener, and surely are unjustly neglected in the concert hall. The scherzo in the 4th concerto has almost manic writing for the solo instrument and had me on the edge of my seat!
Each concerto is played by a different soloist. They all meet the considerable technical difficulties with ease and allow the music to flow effortlessly.
The orchestra is the Philharmonique Royal de Liège, and their playing is of the highest order with a freshness and enthusiasm, needed to bring these pieces off.
Well packaged, with extensive notes.
Warmly recommended.

I have never heard of this composer before when he was featured on ClassidFM. I had to look up the piece the next day and then buy the album. Some stunning violin works and a wonderful spirit. Loved it, and I'm still playing it
