This is a gem of an audiophile record, a showcase for one of the truly great 20th century violinists ó Nathan Milstein ó whose skill and instrumental mastery matches peers more widely and famously known: Perlman, Heifetz, Haendel, Menuhin, Oistrakh, Szeryng and a handful of other soloists. Clean copies of this album remain super desirable and regularly fetch in excess of $500 from collectors.

The range of music undertaken in this collection ó from the classical expression of Mozart to the salon civilities of Saint-SaŽns ó confirms what was served notice by Milsteinís American debut with the Philadelphia Orchestra in 1929 ó a young artist of special consequence had arrived among us. Here, Milstein is backed by The Concert Arts Orchestra conducted by Walter Susskind for this recording of violin and orchestra masterpieces.

Milstein was a Russian Empire-born virtuoso violinist and American immigrant. It was a concert by the 11-year- old Jascha Heifetz that inspired his parents to make a violinist out of Milstein. At age 7, he started violin studies (as suggested by his parents, to keep him out of mischief) with the eminent violin pedagogue Pyotr Stolyarsky, also the teacher of renowned violinist David Oistrakh. When Milstein was 11, Leopold Auer invited him to study at the St. Petersburg Conservatory. Milstein made his American debut in 1929 with Leopold Stokowski and the Philadelphia Orchestra. He eventually settled in New York and became an American citizen, but toured repeatedly throughout Europe.

Milstein was a technical perfectionist, obsessed with articulating each note perfectly. He would spend long hours working out fingerings which would make passages sound more articulated. He arranged many works for violin and wrote his own cadenzas for many concertos. As a recording artist with Capitol Records, his discs of recital repertoire bloomed with musical taste and stylistic versatility.

Vinyl records are able to capture the purest quality of recorded music in true form. This is possible because the initial recording is captured on an analog source (usually tape) for the ultimate in High Fidelity sound, it is then pressed onto virgin vinyl. Analog recordings capture the bottom end (or bass) while adding sweetness to the high end (or treble) better than any digital recording ever could. Analog systems are still commonly used before they are digitally transferred to CD. This means that the sound then is altered in the transfer process when CD's are produced. The word fidelity means accuracy and faithfulness. High Fidelity sound is faithful to the original sound made by the artist, capturing maximum accuracy of what was intended for the listener to hear. Vinyl records capture those sounds for the ultimate High Fidelity listening experience!

180/200 GRAM Vinyl LP

These vinyl records are produced with 180 or 200 grams of high definition premium grade virgin vinyl. This is a higher quality audiophile pressing than the typical vinyl record of 100-120 grams. These limited edition LP's are manufactured with the hi-fi enthusiast in mind. A 180 or 200 gram LP is sometimes also referred to as an audiophile pressing, there is a higher bass response and an even warmer High Fidelity sound. 180 or 200 grams LP's are typically manufactured in limited amounts and are considered collectibles, commanding a higher price.


Typically, a vinyl reissue is a repressing of an original LP, usually extracted from the recording's master-tapes. In some cases, reissues are remastered to lower surface noise and improve overall sonics. Reissues help preserve the music of an original recording, especially when original LPs become unavailable or can no longer be found. Reissues can be pressed on a variety of thickness from 150 gram to 200 gram and offer a great opportunity for records collectors to own many classic recordings.
