Violinist Alfredo Campoli is accompanied by Eric Gritton for this recording of Encores by Schubert, Albeniz, Mendelssohn, Elgar, Debussy and more.

Combines 2 10'' records on single 12'' record. (Decca LW5180 + LW5242)

''A succession of encore pieces, all played with the utmost enchantment; and with the three more sentimental show-stoppers isolated on side one - so that we have no need to break the mood unless we wish. In search of more athletic achievement, we can turn over; here I think perhaps the Albeniz Tango might have been a little less athletic, a little more sentimental (and how on earth does it take two people to arrange the Fiocco piece? - the credit reads almost like one of those committees that write the not-so-good pop songs). But the search for athleticism is rewarded so fully in The Bee, and for sentiment so fully in the Fibich, Ponce, and Drdla: this is indubitably how to play encores. And, bar a surely unnecessary tape-join in the Fibich, how to record them - a winning sound; and a sensible disposition of the whole on a medium-play. (for Vol.1)

''He combines a knowledge of such pieces with a matured classical technique as does no other violinist I can think of, and he plays the music with sympathy and affection and immense skill. The Drdla sounds quite ravishingly beautiful... and the recording is very good indeed. (for Vol..2)'' - Gramophone

We try to be as accurate as possible, but we use a service to get images for the vinyl records we sell.
