Notes & Reviews:

The story of the amazing violinist Michael Rabin is complicated and ultimately tragic. When his career should have been reaching the height of his success, Rabin was without an active recording contract and most of his existing recordings were deleted due to a 'crisis in the classical music business' (sound familiar?). His accidental death at age 35 ended the sad story of one of the greatest violinists of all time. The good news is that Testament's collection of EMI recordings released here exists as a fitting memorial to this great artist. In addition, in 2012 the label will release a further set of unreleased Rabin performances taken from private tapes belonging to Bertine Rabin.
