Music and Arts put us in their debt with this issue. Zino Francescatti was a lovely violinist with a beautiful, quite individual, strong, singing tone, one capable of melting playing ; he was also a formidable technical player. His sound lacked variety and shades of colour beside someone like David Oistrakh or Heifetz, but on his own terms he was wonderful to listen to. He was not a prolific recording artiste and he is not now well represented in the catalogues. Music and Arts have assembled a generous collection of performances never before issued, all live, from various places and covering the years 1946 to 1973. The box is exceedingly well documentd with a quite excellent booklet giving full details of the performances (including, very honestly, a list of acoustic 'quirks' relating to balance, off-stage noises, clicks, ticks, image instability and so on, none of which spoiled any performance for me) and two excellent lengthy essays by Henry Roth, 'Zino Francescatti' and 'The Recorded Legacy'. I have listened to Francescatti for years and have never seen his art so well explored as by Roth here. As for the music, we have Concerti by Beethoven, Mozart (in G), Brahms, Tchaikovsky and Mendelssohn, Sonatas by Beethoven (Op. 30/2), Brahms (Op. 108) and Prokofiev (No. 2 in D), Ravel's Tzigane, a Bach Partita (No. 1, played absolutely individually and very enjoyably, if you can accept a non-'authentic' approach), the two Beethoven Romances (with piano), and a little Paganini and Saint-Saens. You have to make allowances for the sound sometimes, also for minor glitches of ensemble and intonation that can occur 'live'. But every one of these performances is alive, at the hands of a master violinist, and the music is never allowed to be dull. I enjoyed this issue a great deal and, as I say, I am very grateful to Music and Arts for putting it before us.
