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.
