HD-Vinyls 24/96 (Philips) Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – All Works For Violin And Orchestra (Szeryng)

front-small-boxset
Many thanks to
Jean-Luc for this treasure

Mozart’s violin concertos, although written when he was only 19, are among his finest works. And no violinist is more suited to do do justice to these masterpieces than Henryk Szeryng. Szeryng — although not as famous as some others — was one of the greatest violinists of the 20th century. Although he excelled in a wide range of repertoire — from Vivaldi through Sibelius — Szeryng’s beautiful sweet tone and elegant performance style were especially effective in the performance of Mozart. I’m almost tainted to say: no other violinist I’ve heard excels him in this repertoire. He was the consummate Mozart violinist, as these recordings attest. Highly recommended.

HD-Vinyls 24/96 (Philips) WAM – Sonatas For Piano And Violin (Haebler/Szeryng)

front-small-boxsetAll thanks for tis gem go to our friend Jean-Luc
These recordings dating from 1969 to 1975, were acclaimed by the critics at the time, and are still considered benchmark interpretations even in this age of period practice. Szeryng and Haebler, both great artists in their own right, combine beautifully. One can scarcely imagine these works being played any better than this. The balance between the instruments is nearly always perfect. There is no sense that either of the two musicians is trying either to outplay or to underplay the other. They seem to share a unified vision. Both perform with exquisite finish and beautiful tone, coupled with classical restraint–just what is required for this music. Fluid dialog and good balance between two great soloists who do enjoy playing together and go deep into Mozart’s music.
Friends, I can only say: to let go these WAM-Sonatas will be the greatest sin in your live. And…by the way, get everything you can find of super-vilionist Szeryng.

All our hearts and thanks fly to
Jean-Luc for this beautiful gift
My friends, in front of the Genius of Beethoven, I swear, I don’t know, which releases I love more: the Oborin/Oistrakh ones or these marvellous Haebler/Szeryng gems. Both pairs of gigantic performers are as great as you can never never get again in ten lifes. This catapults Jean-Luc in the heart of everyone, who loves Beethoven, as the most beloved brother, that life can bring to anyone. This is an outstanding box that includes the great “Kreutzer” sonata as well as Beethoven’s less well-known works for the piano and violin. The opus 96 sonata in particular is outstanding. The listener will greatly enjoy exploring using this collection to explore Beethoven’s ten sonatas for these instruments.

Many thanks to our friend Jean-Luc for this beauty
This 1964 version with Szeryng and Hendl is superior. The sound is brilliant and weighty, with a nice amount of reverb and “air” around the sound. Nonetheless the orchestral sound is detailed and very, very good for the era.

This is Szeryng in his prime. The interplay between he and Dorati demonstrates how strong an accompanist Dorati could be, as he perfectly complements his soloist at all turns.
