Romanticist and classicist, modernist and conservative, the violinist Joseph Szigeti defied classification.

His wide repertoire ranged from Bach to Bartók and beyond, and he played it all with skill and understanding, becoming known as ‘the thinking man’s virtuoso’. Issued internationally and complete, for the first time on CD in this limited edition original-jackets collection, these Mercury recordings were made in New York and London during the autumn of Szigeti’s career, between 1959 and 1961.

The original Mercury tapes have been given new high-definition transfers at Abbey Road Studios, and then remastered by Thomas Fine.
