Notes & Reviews:

The 20th-century produced a wealth of talented Jewish violinists. Although the list includes such luminaries as Heifetz and Perlman, the most extraordinary may be the Polish violinist Bronislaw Huberman. Huberman posessed superb technique, but his legacy goes far beyond that. In the early 1930s, Huberman saw the situation for Jews deteriorating in Europe. So he recruited the finest Jewish musicians to form an orchestra, the Palestine Symphony, later renamed the Israel Philharmonic. This set makes available for the first time recordings from a 1982 festival honoring the centenary of Huberman's birth. It features a literal who's-who of the finest violinists of the time.
