A Violinist's Violin List
The Art of Ivry Gitlis [IMPORT]
"Bartók's 2:nd concerto and solo sonata: some supercharged super-luxury playing by mad genious Ivry Gitlis."
"Hearing Jascha Heifetz in Elgar's concerto (I suffer from a severe periodic addiction) makes me feel that this is the only way to play it. Other recordings seem unimportant. Don't wait -buy it!"
Menuhin - Violin Sonatas, Vol 5
"Enescu: a monumental masterpiece, given a ravishing interpretation by teenage Yehudi and his sister Hephzibah."
Schubert - Sonate D.574, Rondo op.70, Fantasie D.934
"Especially the Rondo in B minor is given an incredibly exciting, technically perfect, sparkling and bouncing performance, that easily beats Kremer, Milstein and anyone else."
Berg: Violin Concerto
"Usually not among my favourite players, Mutter (with the brilliant Chicago SO) here seem to do most things right in what is possibly the best recording of the greatest 20:th century violin concerto."
Jascha Heifetz - It Ain't Necessarily So. Legendary classic and jazz studio takes
"Claire de lune (Debussy). Vogel als Prophet (Schumann). With Heifetz!"
Beethoven, Brahms: Violin Concertos
"Beethoven 2:nd movement: so incredibly sweet yet noble! Most beautiful violin sound all categories? Probably. The very essence of western culture? Possibly. An obvious Great Buy? Well, a Must Buy."
The First Recordings of Ginette Neveu and The Complete Recordings Josef Hassid
"While having recorded only these 9 bagatelles, Josef Hassid is somehow one of the Greatest. Beats Heifetz in Achron's Melody, with a more sensitive approach. Tragedy ended his career much too early."
Aristocrat Of The Violin
"Self-recommending super bargain box with the elegant maestro. Lots of concerto, chamber and solo recordings, including his classic 50's complete solo Bach account, preferable to his 70's DG version."
Heifetz Plays Bach
"C-major sonata with fugue, D-minor partita with Chaconne. Noble and athletic, even a bit frightening. I believe this playing will impress listeners of any direction of taste. Just open your ears!"
Mendelssohn / Schumann: Piano Trios [Recorded 1928]
"Maybe an odd choice for a violin list but check it out anyway! Sublime beauty in these two masterpieces with an obvious key- and thematic relationship but very different in charactere."
Heifetz Collection, Vol.21
"Two more indispensable Heifetz classics. Korngold! Waxman! Violin ecstasy."
"Franco Gulli, uniquely gentle, elegant and neat, is clearly one of the most perfect players we will hear, up there with Nathan & Jascha. Deserves much greater fame -and a rerelease. Buy all you can!!!"
Piano Suite/Violin Sonata/Orchestral Suite [IMPORT]
"Enescu's own (with the great Lipatti on piano) great recording of his 3rd sonata. Get it if you can!"
Enescu & Lipatti Interpret Enescu & Lipatti
"Alternative edition of the abovementioned Enescu-Lipatti collaboration. Attractive collection crowned by the unreal 3rd v&p sonata."
Paganini: Vln Ctos 1 & 2 / Caprices Nos 13 20 & 24
"Gitlis in Paganini -not to be missed. Check YouTube for a sample of La Campanella."
Thibaud and Long Play Mozart
"Thibaud and Long in Mozart's A major sonata K.526. Desert island quality."
Violin Concertos Nos 1 & 2 Violin Sonata No 2
"Oistrakh at his smoothest -and freshest."
24 Caprices (Ricci)
"My old favourite in Paganini Capricci."
Paganini: 24 Capricci for solo violin
"My new favourite -it was a wonderful surprise for me how fantastic this is."
Ysaye - Solo Violin Sonatas
"Artistically and technically superb. A remarkable level of intonation accuracy -almost frightening."
Leonidas Kavakos, Peter Nagy, Maurice Ravel, George Enescu
"A very good contemporary recording of Enescu's majestic 3rd sonata for violin and piano, plus the delightful Impressions d'enfance and Ravel's Tzigane."
Art of Ivry Gitlis - Violin Concertos
"Absolutely unforgettable performances by the spectacular Maestro Gitlis. These recordings used to be really rare jewels until recently, with this truly sensational bargain reissue."
Beethoven/Complete Son for Violin/Piano
"Superb interpretation by Szigeti and Arrau, recommended ("-besides Heifetz, of course.") to me by my dear violin teacher, Professor Henryk Kowalski."
Heifetz Collection, Vol.5
"Heifetz in Chausson's Concerto Op. 21 is such a treat! One I often come back to -one of my absolute Heifetz favourites. It immediately needs wider distribution."
