HD-Vinyls 24/96 (Philips) Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – Violin Concertos No. 1 & 4 (Grumiaux)

front-small-boxsetMany 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”.

HD-Vinyls 24/96 + 16/44 (Philips) WAM – Violin Concerto K. 211 / Sinfonia Concertante K. 364

front-small-boxset All thanks for these gems go to Jean-Luc
Guranteed to do two things. First, this disk will transform all skeptics into Mozart devotees. Second, it will be one of your favorite most frequently played disks. Mozart’s Sinfonia Concertante is one of his most beautiful works, and here it gets one of the most remarkable performances I’ve ever heard. It has the sort of joy and expressiveness you can only find in a live performance. The Violin Concerto, if not quite as good, is still a stellar rendition which underlines once more what a first class violinist Arthur Grumiaux was.
