Tschaikowsky - Mozart - Bach: These benchmarks in Yehudi Menuhin's repertoire are presented on this CD in exemplary interpretations. His take on Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto is structurally clear and striking in its declamation. In Mozart's D major Concerto he accentuates the tension between formal classicity and expressional subjectivity. Bach's Chaconne is presented not as a deduction from a theme but as a circling approach towards the fundamental idea. The recordings is further enhanced by great musical concurrence with the conductors: Ferenc Fricsay, whom Menuhin admired greatly as an artist and as a person, and Karl Böhm, whose ideals in Mozart interpretation he shared. This CD offers an insight into Yehudi Menuhin's extensive repertoire and his ideals in musical interpretation.

The production is part of our series "Legendary Recordings" and bears the quality feature "1st Master Release". This term stands for the excellent quality of archival productions at audite. For all historical publications at audite are based, without exception, on the original tapes from broadcasting archives. In general these are the original analogue tapes, which attain an astonishingly high quality, even measured by today's standards, with their tape speed of up to 76 cm/sec. The remastering - professionally competent and sensitively applied - also uncovers previously hidden details of the interpretations. Thus, a sound of superior quality results.
