HD-Vinyl 24/192 (DGG) Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – Violin Concerti No. 4 & 5 (Schneiderhan)

Wolfang Schneiderhan is -undeniably – one of the master violinists in Mozart. His intonation is extremely evocative, his phrasing has that naïf touch so lovable in these works. Mozart doesn’t demand fierceness but delicacy and slender elegance and finesse. The Fourth Concerto is one the most relevant examples of superb musicality and austere sobriety.

HD-Vinyls 24/96 (DGG) Ludwig van Beethoven – Violin Sonatas Op. 47 No. 9 + Op. 24 No. 5 (Schneiderhan/Seemann)

front-small-boxsetSchneiderhan was a formidable technician with a searching intellect and a distinctively sweet, though never cloying, tone. He always placed musical values ahead of virtuosity for its own sake. Becuase he shunned glamor, he never quite made it to cult status. Today his reputation rests on his numerous recordings for DG, nearly all of which have been praised by critics since they were first issued. His Mozart concerto cycle remains one of the two or three finest ever recorded.
