Synopsis

Album Description
"Menuhin's account of the Variations [represents] the interpretation of a musician who has lived long with this music and loves it. He and the engineers have taken immense care with the timbre of the upper strings in the statement of the theme and there are several passages--the prominence given to the lower strings in the middle section of `Dorabella,' for example--where Menuhin directs the listener's attention to yet another facet of this inexhaustibly fascinating score. Nothing `routine' here, nor in the RPO's playing." -- Gramophone
