Format: Audio CD
To put this CD on your turntable is to plunge from high hopes to bitter disappointment. Szigeti plays the Mendelssohn Cto. with Bruno Walter (1841) and the Brahms with mitropoulos (1948), but don't let the relatively late dates fool you. The tinny, shrill, cramped sound is too primitive to be listenable, comparable to Edison cylinders from the turn of the century. Music and Arts isn't doing anyone a favor by releasing such a disc, not without a bold warning about the sound for prospective buyers.
