If I could rate this with 6 stars I would. A marvellous set of audio CDs. The music is wonderful, played by 2 of the greatest violinists. The quality of the recordings is good and the selection of songs is extensive. The players blend their styles so well and their enthusiasm for working together comes across in their music. I listen to these cds over and over and never tire of them.
This box is an incredible bargain. Menuhin and Grappelli came from very different backgrounds and musical fields, but they enjoyed making music together and the results are often highly spontaneous and enjoyable. Buy it while you can!
I was fortunate to attend a concert by Stephan Grapelli, at a time what Traditional Jazz was enjoying a revival - early 1960's; and as a lover of classical music I thought the blending of the different styles of these two maestros would produce a new stratum in violin musicianship. And it did, as recorded on this precious disc!
Wonderful and nostalgic - superb seemingly effortless expertise from this amazing duo! Bought after seeing a documentary on Menuhin, so glad I saw that which promoted this essential CD for anyone's collection - brilliant price for such a multitude of songs!
