Notes & Reviews:

Vaclav Hudecek ranks among the most gifted violinists, not only on a Czech but also an international scale, to have graced a 20th-century concert stage. David Oistrakh, who immediately recognized Hudecek's exceptional talent, was his teacher and mentor, and on several albums accompanied him as a conductor too. Hudecek made the recordings of the four greatest Romantic violin concertos for Supraphon with Jiri Belohlavek and Vaclav Smetacek. They bear witness to the remarkable musicality and technical skill of the Czech representative of the Russian violin school and many years later have lost none of their power and should occupy a place in the collections of all lovers of the violin's passionate tone.
