Format: COMPACT DISC
Philharmonia Hungarica; Shumsky, Oscar; Segal, Uri
Oscar Shumsky has been hailed as one of the greatest violinist of the 20th century. Having recorded the Beethoven Violin Concerto, the complete solo sonatas and partitas by Bach, and the complete Mozart violin sonatas, this release of the Brahms Violin Concerto is the remaining violin masterpiece to complete Shumsky’s extensive discography. Although the violinist recorded a LP of extracts from the concerto for Music Appreciation Records, a complete performance of the work by Shumsky has never been available until now. Made in 1984 with the Philharmonia Hungarica with Uri Segal conducting, this digital recording had remained forgotten for over 40 years. Finally, with permission from the family, Biddulph Recordings is proud to be able to release this magnificent performance of one of the greatest violin masterworks to the general public.
