Notes & Reviews:

During the summer of 1962, the Czech Philharmonic and its conductor Karel Ancerl took part in the Montreux Festival and gave several concerts which, luckily, were recorded by Radio Suisse Romande. With this Tahra release, listeners can finally enjoy two previously unissued recordings by the great conductor. Featured works include Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto with Nathan Milstein and Dvorak's magnificent Stabat Mater.

American Record Guide, May/June 2014
The Tchaikovsky is a better bet. Milstein, as you would expect, is terrific. It's a very exciting performance, particularly the very fast finale. Soloist and conductor seem to be in perfect agreement, so this will be desirable for Milstein fans. This is recommended. His work on both pieces is very fine.
