RGENTA España · Tchaikovsky: Violin Concerto

Ataúlfo Argenta

“A famous early stereo LP … displays his [Argenta’s] flair, not least in the sparkling account of Chabrier’s
title-piece. The highlight of the disc is Rimsky’s Capriccio which … has seldom been equalled for its
brilliance and Mediterranean colour, with superb virtuosity from the LSO. The 1957 Kingsway Hall recording
with its glittering percussion is dazzling in this transfer.”
