Notes & Reviews:

Between 1957-59, producer Walter Legge had recordings made of the essential items in Hungarian cellist János Starker's repertoire. This complete collection of his recordings for EMI and Erato represents the summit of Starker's achievement on disc. Legge, a perfectionist and ruthless critic, undoubtedly found in the inward-looking temperament of Starker an ideal talking companion, especially since the two men had a pronounced liking for caustic humor, and one can be sure that the stamp of the famous artistic director was constantly in evidence throughout the recording sessions.
