Bach: Sonatas & Partitas for Violin ~ J.S. Bach
5.0 out of 5 stars The best Bach!, 15 Aug 2011
This is the interpretation that I keep coming back to for solo violin Bach. A flawless Chaconne - absolutely one of my favorite works. I cannot recommend this enough.
Violin Concerto / Serenade Nos. 1 & 2 / Humoreske &hellip ~ Ida Haendel

Haendel is definitely my favorite interpreter of the Sibelius Violin Concerto (which even the composer himself praised) - I've listened to some other ones (Szeryng, Heifetz, Oistrakh, Ferras), but tend to gravitate back to her when it comes to Sibelius. I own 3 recordings of this VC by Haendel; this one, one with Simon Rattle/City Of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, as well as one with Karl Ancerl/Czech Philharmonic Orchestra. This one comes out first for me. Highly recommended! My favorite interpretation of my favorite violin concerto!
It Never Snows in September: The German View of Ma&hellip by Robert J. Kershaw

This is a good book covering the German perspective for Operation Market-Garden. It really shows how much the German command had to improve to organize such a defense, and in such a timely manner. The maps included in this specific version are a bit lacking (some good maps are included, but there aren't enough of them), and the author skips some of the introductory material, which could confuse readers who don't know much about Market-Garden (though this shouldn't be the first book they read on it, anyway). Works great as a complement to A Bridge Too Far. Definitely recommended for those interested on the German side of the battle.
