About

Upheld by many as a queen amongst her peers, violinist Camilla Wicks led a stellar career in the dozen years following World War II. At the peak of her fame she retired from the concert stage to devote herself to her family. Upon resuming her career, she remained an outstanding if intermittent performer for several more decades.

Wicks made few commercial recordings besides a famed 1952 performance of the Sibelius Concerto. Now this precious set, spanning five decades and a vast range of repertoire, offers the most comprehensive collection of her concert performances ever likely to be assembled. It offers an in-depth insight into Wicks’ evolution from captivating, devil-may-care young virtuoso to profound interpreter.

Music & Arts is pleased to make these great performances available for those who have long wished for Wicks’ discography to be expanded, and to enable a wider audience to be stirred by this extraordinary violinist and artist.
