Notes & Reviews:
Arthur Grumiaux was a prince among violinists and recorded extensively for Philips/Decca. Many of his recordings - some of them released internationally for the first time on CD - have appeared on an extensive series on the Eloquence label. Here is another - a rare 1956 performance of the Tchaikovsky concerto coupled with his highly-praised traversals of the Stravinsky and Berg concertos. [Berg/Stravinsky]: "Grumiaux's pure style brings rare magic to both these works. To the Berg he brings above all tenderness and sweetness; to the Stravinsky he brings above all strength and dynamism. The one virtuoso, remaining his individual self all the time, effortlessly encompasses the utterly different demands of each work."
