Notes & Reviews:

A violinist revered by the cognoscenti, Zino Francescatti (1902-91) is today too little-known, despite a fairly extensive but less-than-easily available discography. In his lifetime, he was spoken of in the same breath as both Heifetz and Nathan Milstein. This 4-CD set of rare recordings, including concerti, chamber works, and encore pieces, is a welcome addition to the marketplace for violin lovers and Francescatti admirers.
