Arthur Grumiaux

Brahms: Violin Concerto; Overtures; Alto Rhapsody (CD)

Considered by many to be Grumiaux's best recording of the Brahms Violin Concerto, this performance, by turn tender and muscular, receives its first international release on CD. The Concertgebouw is in glorious form under Van Beinum and Aafje Heynis is an amber-toned soloist in the inspiring Alto Rhapsody.
