HD-Vinyls 24/96 (EMI) Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy – Two Violin Concerti (Menuhin)

front-small-boxsetEveryone knows Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto in E-Minor. But, what about his Concerto in D-Minor? The thirteen-year-old Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto in D minor remained unknown until a dealer in rare musical scores and books showed the manuscript to Yehudi Menuhin in 1951. The violinist bought it, edited the first published edition, gave the first modern performance in New York on 4th February 1952 and made the first record two days later. This was also his first appearance on disc as violinist-conductor. In the United States the recording was issued on LP coupled with the present version of the E minor Violin Concerto under Furtwängler, but the reciprocal arrangement between RCA Victor and HMV was breaking down and so, rather than wrestle with contractual problems, HMV simply set down the work again in London for the British market, on 2nd April 1953, with Sir Adrian Boult conducting. Towards the end of his career Menuhin made a further coupling of the two Mendelssohn Concertos under Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos.

If You hear some clicks and pops here and there, Who cares?
Id rather have a few light anomalies instead of destroying the music.
Enjoy the music, not the ticks & pops.
My rips are almost rough rips.

  1. I have always liked Menuhin, but do not recall his playing the lesser know concerto,
    Very good.
    Thanks, I like great violin playing anyway.
    You’ve given us some great stuff with Accardo, Szeryng, Stern, Heifetz, Kennedy, et al.
