Menuhin and Grappelli Play "Jealousy" & Other Great Standards
Format: Audio CD|Change
Price:£20.00+ Free shipping with Amazon Prime

on 22 September 2017
For the title track of 'Jealousy' alone, this album is worth getting. The bringing together of such incredible playing is a rare thing indeed, but you simply have to hear the complimenting of both players of the violin to each other to believe it. Some tracks are left to a singular approach and yet when they play together...Yehudi Menuhin and Stephan Graffelli managed to achieve a beauty and grace that causes this album and others to be a worthy and truly classic album to have. It's jolly in parts but not too jolly and it's graceful but without being too graceful. Well worth getting if you admire either the violin or either of these two musical geniuses.

quite remarkable and unique. Their artistry and their friendship shine through. There's also the charm of the nostalgia it evokes

Stephane Grapelli plays some tracks in an orcgestral setting with Yehudi Menuhin, to this jazz fan's ear acquitting himself well. It is when Menhuin plays jazz with Grapelli that the differences reveal themselves.

Menuhin is obviously a consumate, skilled violinist and he can play follow Grapelli and play all the latter's notes during their solos, but he doesn't have the jazzman's technique or feeling. For this reason each soloist can readily be identified. Nevertheless

If you love 1930s music, as I do, you will absolutely adore this cd. The beautiful playing between Menuhin and Grappelli is a complete joy. All the tracks are familiar classics recorded in a unique way. Buy it

This was a present to me father and he loves it. Guess anyone into this would appreciate it, He says the sound is great, but I must admit a preference to listening to vinyl.
