"Szigeti never had an interest in being a virtuoso. He was a musician who happened to play the violin. The depth of his insight, his ability to understand and communicate the structure of whatever he played, the intellectual rigor of his approach—these are the qualities that won him the admiration of generations of musicians, including other violinists. Any experienced listener immediately recognizes that this is music-making of importance." - Fanfare, 2021 (on the award-winning Volume 1)
The highlight of this superb second volume of Szigeti's European recordings is without doubt his superb 1932 Beethoven Violin Concerto with Bruno Walter. These classic recordings, in fabulous new Mark Obert-Thorn transfers also features a selection of shorter works by Schubert, Weber, Paganini and more Beethoven. Irresistible!
