 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, Bartók, Ravel, Prokofiev, Honegger, Bloch, and Martin. These rare New York airchecks find him still in fine shape, before arthritis began to seriously affect his tone.
