Brahms: Violin Concerto Op. 77 / Ginette Neveu, violin; Roger Desormiere, National Orchestra of France

Album Summary

>Brahms, Johannes : Concerto for Violin in D major, Op. 77
Performer Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

At age fifteen, Ginette Neveu became a worldwide celebrity when she won the Henryk Wieniawski Violin Competition over 180 contestants, including the future virtuoso David Oistrakh, who finished second, and Henri Temianka, who finished third. Neveu was immediately signed to an extensive touring contract that took her to many of the world's leading concert halls. Noted for her intensity, power and impeccable sonority, Neveu is recognized as one of the great violinists of her era despite her tragic death at only age 30. Her discographic testament is remarkable, but also cut tragically short. Luckily, a number of live recordings have survived, mainly produced by European radio stations. This remastered recording from 1948 featuring the Brahms concerto was taken from a German radio broadcast from Baden-Baden.
