Correction to the Violin Concerto credits

welshbob

The Orchestra and Conductor should be The New Queens Hall Orchestra under Sir Henry Wood. The Cello credits are correct

a definite yes

I didn't really appreciate Casals until I heard his Elgar. So gritty and real, you can almost see him playing in your mind.

Both pieces and their performances are stunning in their own way. You would not get similar recordings nowadays - tastes have changed; but if you already know the pieces these are well worth adding to your collection. You'll have to accept the constant downpour of static - but it is suprisingly easy to ignore. Boult sets a benchmark others frequently fail to equal.

Go for the Sammons

The Violin concerto : Despite the near-legendary status of Menuhin's recording, it was Sammons who came closest to Elgar's score (Menuhin slows down in places where he can't manage the notes). His reading, too, shows greater maturity - he seems more in touch with the strange mixture of energy, melancholy and, at times, anger that characterise late Elgar. The sound, too, is amazing. Sammons combines the sweetness of Kreisler with a darkness that is utterly personal. A treasure of a recording.
