For the first time, all the early recordings made in Berlin by the great violinist Adolf Busch are collected in one release.

Busch was at his peak in the 1920s and this set, newly transferred direct from the 78rpm originals, includes all the published solos that he recorded for Deutsche Grammophon in 1921-22 - several of them unavailable for eight decades - as well as the first recordings by the legendary Busch Quartet, made in 1922.

From the late 1920s come Busch's first records for His Master's Voice, a Bach sonata and Bach's D minor Partita with its great Chaconne, plus two unpublished takes.
