About

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of legendary, 6-time Grammy winning violinist Isaac Stern (1920-2001), Sony Classical is proud to present a new edition of his entire American Columbia analogue discography: 75 CDs of the recordings that established the American violinist’s worldwide reputation as one of the outstanding musical figures of his time.

Stern was a child prodigy, entering the conservatory in San Francisco (where his family had settled) when he was only eight. In 1936, at 16, he made his recital debut and played with the San Francisco Symphony under Monteux and the Los Angeles Philharmonic under Klemperer. The violinist’s earliest releases, beginning in 1946, already included the indispensable concertos of Tchaikovsky, Mendelssohn, Wieniawski, Brahms and others, works he would revisit in the studio at various stages of his career.

This stunning new collection includes Stern’s acclaimed recordings of virtually every major violin concerto in the repertoire, from Bach, Vivaldi and Mozart to Prokofiev, Bartók and Berg, with conductors including Mitropoulos, Walter, Szell and, above all, Ormandy and Bernstein – not to mention Stravinsky’s Concerto under the composer’s baton, and newer specimens created expressly for Stern by Penderecki and Rochberg.

Also on full display is Stern’s extraordinary love and affinity for chamber music: including violin sonatas by Mozart, Franck, Brahms (all three) and Bartók; the great piano trios surveyed with his regular partners Leonard Rose and Eugene Istomin; and treasured collaborations with Pablo Casals and his festival ensembles that featured such distinguished players as Alexander Schneider, Milton Katims, Paul Tortelier and Myra Hess – including the first CD releases of the Brahms Second String Quintet and Schumann Piano Quintet from 1952. Like that Sibelius recording and so many others in this vast new Isaac Stern edition, they haven’t aged a day.
