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.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Abbey Road Studios, London (1977).
