I got addicted to this recording in the Army when my roommate began playing his LP copy. It, like a number of other recordings, stuck with me and I bought the same pieces recorded by others several times over the years until this re-release became available. I'm not saying that I really know anything about serious musicians, but Zino Francescatti plays his heart out on this, while everyone else in the other recordings seems to be lost somewhere else. Even to a non-expert, it becomes clear that there are just times, places, and people that, when combined properly, yield music that gets the hairs up on your arms, again and again. This is one of those.
