Notes & Reviews:

Violinist Mischa Elman rarely played for radio broadcasts, even in America, but he did so occasionally for the BBC. The two recitals on these compact discs were pre-recorded on a visit to England in 1961 and feature pianist Joseph Seiger. This Testament release marks their fi rst appearance on disc. For the Elman enthusiast, two pieces stand out. The Brahms G major Sonata is the only one of the three that the violinist did not record commercially. Also, the Gavotte en Rondeau from Bach's E major Partita is important because we have virtually no unaccompanied Bach from Elman. Other repertoire includes a Handel Sonata, the Vitali Chaconne and Beethoven's Spring Sonata.

American Record Guide, July / August 2012
The hi-fi monaural sound is very clear and good for its era. I just wish that Elman's accompanist Joseph Seiger had been given more presence. The quality of the recording and the inclusion of the Beethoven and, especially, the Brahms sonata, which Elman never recorded commercially, are the main reasons to get this release.
