Virtuoso Violin Concertos – Sibelius, Tchaikovsky, Sarasate, Saint-Saens, Khachaturian

Ruggiero Ricci (violin)
London Symphony Orchestra, London Philharmonic Orchestra, Oivin Fjeldstad, Sir Malcolm Sargent, Piero Gamba, Anatole Fistoulari

Ruggiero Ricci is in his element in these virtuoso concertos and showpieces, with both, the Tchaikovsky Concerto (with Sargent) and Scherzo and the Sibelius Violin Concerto being released internationally on CD for the first time. The perceptive booklet notes by Tully Potter include a biography of Ricci and (sometimes wry!) comments by the violinist himself on the recordings, and some fascinating detail on the first movement cadenza of the Khachaturian. All the recordings were made in a five-year period from 1956 (Khachaturian) to 1961 (Tchaikovsky).
