"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
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
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."

"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."

"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."

"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]
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."

"Two more indispensable Heifetz classics. Korngold! Waxman! Violin ecstasy."
Mendelssohn
Mendelssohn
"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!!!"

"Enescu's own (with the great Lipatti on piano) great recording of his 3rd sonata. Get it if you can!"

"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."
