HCD-2012-033DL (MONO) - Respighi: Concerto Gregoriano - Kurt Stiehler, violin; Leipzig Radio Symphony Orchestra/Ernest Borsamsky; de Beriot: Scene de Ballet - Carl Taschke, violin; Leipzig Philharmonic Orchestra/Herbert Kegel - Rare, one-of-a-kind recordings of unusual solo violin work with orchestra. The Respighi Concerto Gregoriano was composed in 1921, inspired by Gregorain chant, and an attempt by the composer to incorporate the purity of temperance and form peculiar to the religious music of the Middle Ages. Charles Auguste de Beriot was regarded in his prime as thr heir to Paganini. His Scene de Ballet is redolent of Auber, Bellini, and Donizetti. Few violin pieces are as elegant and infused with melody as this piece. Both pieces were recorded by Urania in the early 1950s. This transcription is of the Varese Sarabande LP issued in the 70s; the disc itself was seldom played. Produced by customer request; thanks to Marc Ludig for suggesting this reissue.
