"Consistently spectacular performances...flawless intonation, a fabulous technique, elegance as well as intensity and a feeling for phrasing that was awesome...beautifully remastered radio discs... the music is so inspired. My advice: get this!"

In Tune, June 29-Sept. 20, 1998. Heuwell Tircuit



The Beethoven Violin Concerto was long available on our bestselling CD-550 (now out of print), but to the contents of that album we have now added a newly discovered Brahms Violin Concerto and are issuing the entire collection of historic public performances in a two CD set.



"In a good year for reissues, the two-disc set of public performances given by Ginette Neveu in 1949, just before her death in an air crash, stood out. Half a century later the vividness and fiery purity of her playing still astonish and inspire."

The Sunday Times (London): December 20,1998: David Cairns



"The contents of this release show that by 30 Neveu had arrived at forceful and highly personal notions of major repertoire. It would be hard to imagine these pieces being played with greater intensity, almost too severe for Chausson, but the Ravel is as febrile as one would like it. These are all very exciting, bracing renditions, in highly variable but more or less listenable sound." Fanfare: November/December 1998: David K. Nelson



Justin R. Herman wrote of the earlier collection in The New Records: "Some of the most accurate, full-toned and sensitive performances I have heard of these works...sheer magic...".



Mortimer H. Frank ranked the Beethoven in his Fanfare review as "one of...the great recordings of the score."
