Audiophile 180g Virgin Vinyl LP! From The Original Analogue Masters of Universal Music! Pressed at Pallas! Violinist Ion Voicou performs Mendelssohn and Bruch violin concertos with the London Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Rafael Fruhbeck de Burgos. Recorded at Kingsway Hall, February 17, 18 and 20, 1965. Ion Voicou appears to have most of the solo violinist's desirable virtues. His technique is admirably assured (no scrapes or smudges in the finale of the Bruch Concerto); his tone is sweet and clear (no misplaced soupiness in the Andante of the Mendelssohn); his phrasing throughout is ample and long-breathed... The orchestral contribution is very good indeed and so is the recording. Gramophone, The Mendelssohn and Bruch Concertos seem to be made for each other, and have always remained a favoured pairing. The recordings date from 1965, and are two of the finest readings I have ever come across. Nicely paced, Voicu projects a warm, luscious and pure tone. Technically accomplished, they are dispatched with elegance, Polish and refinement. Portamenti are tasteful and used sparingly for expressive effect. This is notably so in the lyrical passages of the Bruch. Rafael Fruhbeck de Burgos provides admirable support, as he did for Menuhin in the Mendelssohn Concerto six years later in 1971, again with the LSO.

All New Items on flyvintageandvinyl.com are Priced Below MSRP
and do not reflect our in-store prices and are not necessarily in stock at our physical store.
In fact, most items won’t be because we’re a small, family run business and don’t have space to stock nearly 500,000 new titles.

Separate Shopping Carts for New and Used Items
Because new items available on flyvintageandvinyl.com are fulfilled by our distributor and used items available on used.flyvintageandvinyl.com
(via the “Buy Used” button above) are fulfilled by us at our physical store, they require separate shopping carts and checkout procedures.
It’s a minor inconvenience, but we’ll try to make it worth your while with our selection, ultrasonic-cleaned used records and competitive prices.
Shipping within the U.S. is $5 for the first LP plus 50¢ for each additional LP via USPS Media Mail.
