Notes & Reviews:

Arthur Grumiaux 's career nearly ended before it began. At the outset of WWII he was just embarking on an international career after winning several competitions. Living in occupied Belgium, Grumiaux took the decision to withdraw from public performance so as not to be forced to play for the occupying forces. Instead, he kept up his skills by playing chamber music with friends. This love of chamber music formed an important part of his world-wide career which took off immediately following the war. Arthur Grumiaux owned both Stradivarius and Guarneri violins and he was renowned as a player of classical elegance. His repertoire was wide stretching from the Baroque to the then 'modern' works of Berg and Stravinsky. Arthur Grumiaux was also a dedicated teacher, succeeding his own teacher Alfred Dubois at the Brussels Conservatory.
