Among Russian violinists, Nathan Mironovich Milstein was unfairly put in the shade by Jascha Heifetz. Born in Odessa into a middle-class family, Milstein was often compared to Heifetz because they came from a similar violinistic pedigree. In truth they were different in social background and many of their interpretative strengths were complementary. Milstein excelled in precisely those areas where Heifetz might be said to have been weakest, Bach, Mozart and Beethoven. This disc rescues four splendid performances from perhaps the least publicised period of Milstein’s recording career, before he moved to Capitol and re-recorded much of the same repertoire in stereo.


   




Review By Penguin Guide,January 2009

These Mozart pieces are given with all the elegance and finesse—and purity—that Milstein commanded, and make a splendid foil to the Dvorák and Glazunov Concertos.
