"The unlikely duo of Menuhin and Grappelli play great pre-war standards. The album is not just a must if you like to hear two great masters play the violin in completely diverging styles, it is just great music to listen to! Very energetic and lively!"
5 stars for Grappelli

"I saw Grappelli and band about 5 years ago at a local university. As a violinist I was absolutely staggered. He was in his 80's and playing with only a few inches of bow, and yet what elegance and fluidity. Not to mention the wheelchair.This album has great, familiar songs, and I would have rated it higher as there is only 1 Grapelli. When Menuhin plays, you have the sense that he's reading and almost struggling with the musical ideas. Still it's fascinating to hear how 2 men playing the same instrument can sound SO different..."
