Jacket EX / LP NM

This outstanding LP – a fine collector's copy – from Philips (95 00 158 GT. 06, red/silver label, stereo, Spanish pressing) features Henryk Szeryng's brilliant presentation of 4 Violin Concerti by Antonio Vivaldi, wonderfully fluent and radiant readings, in which the great Polish virtuoso is joined by a host of great string players and leads the estimable English Chamber Orchestra – a true delight from first to last. The works included are:

Concerto in A minor for Two Violins, Strings, and Continuo Op. 3 No. 8 RV 522 "L'estro Armonico" – with Henryk Szeryng, Maurice Hasson, and the ECO – rec. Jan/Feb 1976.

Concerto in A minor for Violin, Strings, and Continuo Op. 3 No. 6 RV 356 "L'estro Armonico" – with Henryk Szeryng and the ECO – rec. Jan/Feb 1976.

Concerto in D Major for Violin, Strings, and Continuo Op. 3 No. 9 RV 230 "L'estro Armonico" – with Henryk Szeryng and the ECO – rec. Jan/Feb 1976.

Concerto in B minor for Four Violins, Strings, and Continuo Op. 3 No. 10 RV 580 "L'estro Armonico" – with Henryk Szeryng, Maurice Hasson, Gerard Poulet, Claire Bernard and the ECO – rec. Jan/Feb 1976.

 

Szeryng directs from the violin, the results imbued with an aplomb and stylishness that is a constant delight, with Philips providing a warm soundstage – wonderful music-making!

 

Incidentally, the striking cover art was executed by Cor van Tol of Phonogram International. There are fine liner notes on the reverse side of the jacket, provided in Spanish only, by Michael Talbot.
