Arthur Grumiaux was a prince among violinists and recorded extensively for Philips/Decca. Many of his recordings - some of them released internationally for the first time on CD - have appeared on an extensive series on the Eloquence label. Here is another - a rare 1956 performance of the Tchaikovsky concerto coupled with his highly-praised traversals of the Stravinsky and Berg concertos.

[Berg/Stravinsky]: "Grumiaux's pure style brings rare magic to both these works. To the Berg he brings above all tenderness and sweetness; to the Stravinsky he brings above all strength and dynamism. The one virtuoso, remaining his individual self all the time, effortlessly encompasses the utterly different demands of each work." - Gramophone.

"Grumiaux remains, in my view, the finest exponent of the work [Berg] I have heard on record. He plays with quite extraordinary purity of tone, and his poise, sense of line and phrasing are unparalleled and totally at one with the spirit of the work. Not once does he overstep the line, so easy to do in this concerto, and allow the music to become lachrymose ... this is the performance to convince listeners that Berg's Violin Concerto is a serious musical and emotional document ... It's a performance that should be on every serious collector's shelves, and coupled as it is with an equally outstanding performance of the Stravinsky ... this disc is absolutely unmissable." - MusicWeb International.
