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
