Two 'Phase 4' recordings reappear in their entirety on this double-CD of violin bon-bons. Josef Sakonov's is of virtuoso violin pieces (including Sarasate's 'Zigeunerweisen') and sentimental miniatures by Godard, Tchaikovsky, Ponce and others. This is the first international release of the complete original LP on CD. Erich Gruenberg's recording centres around Fritz Kreisler - as both composer and arranger. Only a handful of these pieces have appeared on CD before and, as with the Sakonov recording, the 'Phase 4' LP is here rendered complete. These are outstanding performances, a must for lovers of the lighter side of the violin repertoire.
