Lalo: Concerto in F for Violin; Schubert: Rondo in F - Miriam Solovieff, violini
GSC031DL (MONO) - Lalo: Concerto in F for Violin and Orchestra, Op. 20; Schubert: Rondo in A for Violin and String Orchestra - Miriam Solovieff, violin; Vienna State Opera Orchestra/Henry Swoboda - Continuing in the series reissuing Concert Hall Society LPs is this fine early 50s recording of the seldom-recorded Lalo Violin Concerto in F, played with sensitivity and dramatic flair by the great violinist Miriam Solovieff. Coupled is another rarely-played piece by Schubert, his Rondo in A, thought by some to be a movement of an unfinished violin concerto. Recording quality is quite good for Concert Hall, although a few flaws had to be fixed; shorn reverb tails, a common problem with this label, and some spots where recording levels varied. I also added a bit of reverb to give the recording some space; the results are quite pleasing. Thanks to John Whitmore for the transcription.
