Ginette Neveu: Ses Derniers Enregistrements (1949); The Last Recordings; Ginette Neveu, violin

Notes & Reviews:

On October 28, 1949, former child prodigy Ginette Neveu boarded a plane in Paris with her pianist brother Jean-Paul to fly to America for a four-month concert tour. Tragically, the plane never reached its destination. These recordings of her three final concerts - September 21st in Stuttgart with her brother, September 25th under Hans Rosbaud in Baden-Baden and October 20th at the Salle Pleyel with her brother - are a musical testament to one of the greatest violinists of her era.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
Ginette Neveu (1919-49), a child prodigy of the 1930s, was at the peak of her post-war celebrity when her life was tragically cut short in a plane crash in October 1949. She left behind a small number of brilliant recordings that have often been rereleased. The performances heard here were made just weeks before her death. The recorded sound is quite good.
