Notes & Reviews:

Zino Francescatti (1902 - 1991) was one of the most loved and admired violinists of the 20th century. His musical lineage can be traced to the legendary Niccolò Paganini. His father, a noted violinist and teacher, studied with Camillo Sivori (1815 - 1894) who was a student of Paganini. He performed internationally with the world leading orchestras and conductors. Francescatti is still considered a violin icon - for his great musicianship and performance style, his amazing virtuosity, and for his unique, distinctive beautiful, warm tone. Included in this release are his Paris 1946 live performances of the Beethoven and Mozart #3 violin concertos, released here for the first time ever.
