Really gorgeous Beethoven violin concerto

"Among the many virtuoso violinists, Ginnette Neveu is my favorite violinists. She has never disappointed me.
Every time I hear her music, I can fully fall into the music and feel her extreme passion and purity.

I own severals of her Brahms violin concertos(Issay Dobrowen / Philharmonia orchestra 1946, Hans Schmidt-Isserstedt / North German Radio Symphony Orchestra 1948 ,Antal Dorati / The Hague Residentie Orchestra 1949) and showpieces.
Among these various versions, this recording is Antal Dorati / The Hague Residentie Orchestra version which was recorded just before her death and became the last recording of Brahms violin concerto.
In this recording, she showed the most potent phrasing and extreme lyricism in Cadenza at the 1st movement.
I think this version is the best Brahms violin concerto.

This is the first time that I heard Beethoven's violin concerto played by Ginnette. Her expression was really gorgeous and phrasing was astonishingly fluent. She made me fall into the real music and made me lament. In addition, even though this recording was MONO ADD, it was clean unbelievably."
This is the one.

"get past the late 40's sound. its not hard, once ginette begins to
create the brahms concerto like no one ever has. nor will this kind of sound be made again soon, I lament. she will ruin your taste for any other violinist. sorry."
An Unforgattable Performance with deep and touching interpre

"Ginette just reached her prime time before the tragedy. Not like her early performance with somewhat forceful but fluently, her Beethoven Violin Concerto gives the insight hardly found by other virtuosos. The lamenting singing and deep thoughts just change the face of a masterpiece often played too frivolously. Every phrase is played with heart, but the integrity and smooth are maintained.
As for recording, you cannot ask more compared with other pre-60's recordings. Not much noise and the clarity of violin is kept. To make it short, this is the disc you can never miss."
