Tr. 1 Johannes Brahms: Violin Concerto D major op. 77 for Violin and Orchestra
Tr. 4 Johannes Brahms: Serenade No. 2 A major op. 16 for Small Orchestra
Although Zino Francescatti (1902-1991) had a long and successful career, which ended in 1976 with his retirement, the number of his recordings available today is very low. Most were made for Columbia (now Sony) and are now sadly, out of print. His incomparably noble tone and beauty of his playing were celebrated throughout the major concert venues of the world. This performance of the Brahms violin concerto is a rarity insofar as it was recorded just two years before his retirement from the concert stage.
