Notes & Reviews:

Josef Suk is the great-grandson of Dvorak so it is fitting that his wonderfully idiomatic performance in stereo of the composer's concerto with Sir Malcolm Sargent at the 1964 Proms is featured here. This was Suk's debut at the Proms. Suk single handedly made the Dvorak Concerto a masterpiece born out by the New York Herald Tribune's review following a sensational concert with George Szell in Carnegie Hall, "Suk played Dvorak's Violin Concerto as if it were the greatest work in the world. He conjured up breathtaking tones from his Stradivarius, which he manages with a technique that seems to know no limits". The stereo coupling is a 1965 performance of the Beethoven Concerto from the 1965 Proms, again with Sargent conducting. As Suk remains one of the great violinists steeped in the European tradition still alive today, this great performance is strongly recommended to collectors.
