Johanna Martzy & Ida Haendel Mendelssohn Violin Concerto 180g Import Vinyl LP

It is particularly instructive, following the terrific studio recordings of the concertos by Mendelssohn to hear the exciting live concert recording made in Stuttgart a few years later with the chief conductor of the RSO, Hans Müller-Kray (1959) and appreciate what a phenomenal violinist Johanna Martzy was, without any thought of grandstanding or pretension, always authentic, fully emphatic and with a select, cultivated taste. - from liner notes by Christoph Schlüren

"The young Ida Haendel was technically on top form in Stuttgart in 1953-55 when she broadcast the Mendelssohn Concerto under the baton of Hans Müller-Kray, her approach, as ever, sweet-toned, fiery... always her inimitable self." - The Gramophone Magazine
