HD-Vinyl 24/96 (Philips) Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – Violin Concertos KV216 & KV219 (Grumiaux)

Many thanks to our friend Jean-Luc for this gem
These recordings were, for many years, considered to be among the best available. This is delightful old-style Mozart (meaning not period instrument) played beautifully and with character by the artists. Arthur Grumiaux’s aristocratic style really shines through here. He does not follow the more romantic style that seems to be very popular these days (check out Perlman and Mutter’s recordings) and instead presents the music as it is intended to be. Some people may be turned off by this approach to the music, though, for it makes the music sound somewhat less impressive and perhaps slightly more dry. Nevertheless, Mozart’s elegant melodies really sing via Grumiaux’s treatment of the music. This is pure “Grandezza”.
