„A Nathan Milstein Recital“ – Works by Domenico Gallo, Robert Schumann, Johannes Brahms, Josef Suk, Ernest Bloch, Niccolò Paganini – Nathan Milstein (v); Carlo Bussotti (p)
In the two Milstein disks that Capitol has issued thus far, it has seen to it that the eminent violinist has been accorded the finest reproduction possible. The present one might very well stand as an object lesson in how properly to record a violin soloist. The selection of material is also very fine. Of special interest are the Pergolesi Sonata, the final movement of which was used by Stravinsky in his ballet „Pulcinella“; the Schumann and Brahms works, which comprise the second and third movements, respectively, of a sonata these two men, together with Albert Dietrich, wrote in honor of Joachim and the unaccompanied Paganiniana, Milstein’s own very effective medley of portions of several Paganini Caprices. It goes without saying that the performances of all the music here are of the highest order. (High Fidelity)
