Notes & Reviews:

A great reissue of this classic recording of the complete Saint-Saëns violin concertos by Ulf Hoescher, he executes these violin concertos of Saint-Saëns at his best: highly affective and "catchy" melodies, colorful orchestrations and a brilliant display of elegant virtuosity, "French" to the fingertips. This recording also contains the smaller works for violin and orchestra.

American Record Guide, July / August 2012
These recordings were part of my LP collection (Seraphim), and I have always liked them very much. On LP the sound was mellower, and the violin sounded smoother. So the sound - always very important to me - is no longer determinative.

MusicWeb International, August 2012
Ulf Hoelscher has the technique and artistry to take full advantage of this in terms of bravura display and, even better, in the soft and gentle sections... It is however the music even more than the playing which makes this an irresistible set...yet another winner from Brilliant's constantly satisfying series of reissues.
