  1. Of course, many great interpreters have played this extraordinary music : Fournier/Francescatti ; Fournier/Oistrakh (my favorite. If Someone has 600 € for the original vinyl, he’s more than welcome 😉 ) ; Ferras/Tortelier ; Starker/Schneiderhan ; Stern/Rose ; Suk/Navarra ; Heifetz/Piatigorsky, etc. But this one is quite special. Superlative orchestra and instrumental mastery and a lot of poetry too (listen the series of “questions and answers” between the violin and the cello in the middle of the 2nd mvt. A true Jewel.
    Thanks Alf.
