Notes & Reviews:
Nathan Milstein (1904-1992) was one of the most virtuosic violinists of the 21st century. He performed well into his 80s, only retiring after suffering a broken hand. This 2-disc set contains some of Milstein's best recordings, taken between the years 1955 and 1960, when he was at the peak of his career. Featuring concertos by Beethoven, Brahms, Mendelssohn, Tchaikovsky, and Bruch, Milstein is accompanied by some of the world's finest orchestras, including the Pittsburgh Symphony, and the Philharmonia Orchestra.
