About

A 10-CD box set containing eight original albums of the greatest violin legends of the 20th century, including Yehudi Menuhin, David Oistrakh, Joseph Szigeti, Jascha Heifetz, Henryk Szeryng, Nathan Milstein, Zino Francescatti, Michael Rabin and others.

They are accompanied by world-famous conductors such as Wilhelm Furtwängler, Georg Solti, Lorin Maazel, Thomas Beecham and others.

The greatest composers have written masterpieces for the violin, which are still among the highlights of our concert life. Beethoven and Brahms, Tchaikovsky, Bruch, Sibelius, Mendelssohn, Mozart, Bach and the great magician on the violin, Niccolo Paganini, are represented here with their work, presented by artists whose names have become legendary themselves.
