Notes & Reviews:

Szigeti (1892-1973) was an artist of rare intellect and integrity; he eschewed the role of the virtuoso, placing himself totally at the service of the music. In addition to the standard repertoire, he championed the music of many 20th-century composers, including Stravinsky, Bartok, Ravel, Prokofiev, Honegger, Bloch, and Martin. These rare New York air checks find him still in fine shape, before arthritis began to seriously affect his tone.

BBC Music Magazine
Unbridled passion and charisma here compensate for occasional temporal and technical blemishes and less than sophisticated recorded sound.
