P0305. GRIGORAS DINICU & His Roumanian Gypsy Orch.:
Roumanian Songs and Melodies, 6s. 3-10”black PW V V-19024/26,
only form of issue, 1939, in Orig. Album S-20. M-A, pristine copy has
2 labels with minor ink stains. Important and very rare! MB 45, the Set.

“Deeply committed to his roots and his home city of Bucharest, Dinicu made a living for many years in hotels and restaurants, drawing great soloists from around the world to hear traditional Romany music. Between the wars Dinicu travelled to London and was warmly received at the Green Park Hotel, appearing on the recommendation of Mischa Elman. He subsequently met Georges Enescu and Fritz Kreisler in Monte Carlo, both of whom were enthusiastic exponents of the gypsy idiom. His finest hour in concert performance came in 1935 with Bruch’s Violin Concerto in g, which left a Romanian audience enraptured by an interpretation imbued with native tradition. Dinicu’s legacy is probably best represented by his generous output of small-scale compositions and arrangements, mostly for violin and piano. Best known is his 1906 showpiece ‘Hora staccato’, a short, fast work in a Romanian dance style that has become a favourite encore, requiring an exceptional command of both up-bow and down-bow staccato. Heifetz made his own popular virtuoso arrangement of this work in 1932 and famously performed it in Vienna. It is a matter of regret that, despite Heifetz’s accolade—dubbing Dinicu the greatest violinist he had ever heard—his important place in the heritage of twentieth-century performance is not well represented in the annals of string playing.”

“Born to Jewish parents in Suwałki, Poland, a Polish shtetl, as Józef Chasyd, Joseph Hassid [he studied with] Carl Flesch (at age 14), his mental breakdown, institutional confinement, and death in 1950 after a brain operation, all that survives of his playing are testimonials by top fiddlers of his time, a 1939 test pressing for EMI, and eight short encore pieces recorded in 1940 with Gerald Moore at the piano. Hassid rivals Heifetz [in the] the pyrotechnics of Elgar’s ‘La Capricieuse’.”

“Born Oskar Reiss, in Vienna, Renardy was an enormously talented artist whose vibrant tone and innate poise earned him early accolades. The conductor Victor de Sabata, for instance, engaged him at 14 to perform as a soloist with the Vienna Philharmonic.

Though he made comparatively few disks, Renardy was the first violinist to record all 24 Paganini caprices, for RCA Victor in 1940, albeit with interpolated piano accompaniment. And his 1948 account of the Brahms Violin Concerto for Decca, with Charles Münch conducting the Concertgebouw Orchestra, remains a benchmark performance sadly in need of reissue….Here is an elegant exponent of the Old School rendering Sarasate and Paganini with delicious dash.”

“Frederick Grinke, Canadian Violinist from Winnipeg studied with Adolf Busch, then in Belgium and London with Carl Flesch. In 1937 he assumed the mantle of concertmaster of the Boyd Neel Orchestra, a post he later left to pursue a solo career. In a long and distinguished career as a soloist Grinke performed in Europe, the USA, Australia, and New Zealand, at the London Promenade Concerts, and at the festivals in Edinburgh, Salzburg, and elsewhere. Vaughan Williams dedicated his Sonata in a (1952) to Grinke, who was known especially for his performances of 20th-century English music. Grinke recorded that work for English Decca, along with others by Benjamin, Berkeley, Ireland, Purcell, Rubbra, and Vaughan Williams. By Vaughan Williams' wish, Grinke and another native Canadian, David Martin, were invited to perform the Bach Double Concerto at the composer's funeral in 1958. Grinke was named a Commander of the Order of the British Empire in 1979.”

“In the first half decade of the 1920s, during the period when Albert Sammons defected to the Vocalion recording company, Columbia, for whom he used to record, turned instead to another leading English violinist on their books, the leader of the Hallé, Arthur Catterall, an English concert violinist, orchestral leader and conductor, one of the best-known English classical violinists of the first half of the twentieth century. In 1902, at the age of 18, he was invited to Bayreuth by Hans Richter and played at all of Cosima Wagner's musical evenings in that season.

In 1911 he acquired the violin made by Jean Baptiste Vuillaume, c. 1843, which had belonged to Ferdinand David. In addition to his orchestral and teaching work, Catterall was active in chamber music throughout his career. He had connections with the London Chamber Music Players (led by Albert Sammons), with the pianist William Murdoch and 'cellist W. H. Squire, and in 1910 founded and led a string quartet under his own name as the Catterall Quartet.”

“The Capet Quartet's performances of the quartets of Ravel and Debussy are, after all, informed by the fact that the performers and the composers were more or less Parisian contemporaries. And although performance styles have changed completely since 1928 and the lean, supple but almost vibrato-less sound they strove for has been supplanted by a richer, weightier sound, the Capet's flawless ensemble with its ideally weighed attacks, its perfectly balanced sonorities and its complete command of tonal color is still a model for quartet playing at its finest.”

“The Virtuoso Quartet was established by HMV for the express purposes of recording. In effect, they displaced the Catterall Quartet from their position recording for HMV. In its ranks were four top-notch British chamber players. Marjorie Hayward was called the best female quartet leader heard in London since the days of Wilma Neruda. Born in 1885 she had studied with Ševčik. Her second violin was the experienced Edwin Virgo, who had depped as second fiddle in the London Quartet between 1916 and 1917 when its resident incumbent Petre had gone off to war. Raymond Jeremy - Bax exponent - had premiered Elgar’s late chamber works in 1919 in a group led by Albert Sammons. And Cedric Sharpe had not long since left the Philharmonic Quartet of which he was the most able cellist, a group led by Arthur Beckwith with Eugene Goossens the second violin and Jeremy the violist. The Virtuoso did play in public.”

From the age of sixteen Szreter continued his studies in Berlin with Egon Petri. After his début in Berlin at the age of seventeen, Szreter had a career for the next ten years playing throughout Europe in the major cities of Germany, Holland, Scandinavia, Italy, Poland, Romania and Czechoslovakia. In the late 1920s he appeared in Paris and made his London début in 1930 at the age of thirty-two.

In 1920, he was named harpist of the Lamoureux Concerts, and two years later performed his first recital in Paris.

“Berg coached the Galimir Quartet in his Lyric Suite in 1931 and inscribed the score of the 20-year old violinist, '’To Felix Galimir, outstanding quartet leader, excellent violinist, splendid musician, in remembrance’.' In 1936, when the Galimir Quartet recorded the Lyric Suite and Ravel's String Quartet, both composers were on hand to oversee the ensemble's rehearsals and recording sessions. The recordings were awarded the Grand Prix du Disques. Felix Galimir, a violinist who was one of the last links to the vital musical world of prewar Vienna, and a chamber music player who was revered by several generations of instrumentalists as a demanding and inspiring coach, stated: ‘'I sometimes tell my students that vibrato is a string player's lipstick’, he said in a 1996 interview. ‘When you get dressed up, you use a little more. When you go on a trip to the mountains, a little less. Every piece has moments of repose. Beauty must have variety’.''

“Victor Olof is remembered chiefly as a recording producer, albeit one with less celebrity than his counterparts, EMI's Walter Legge and Decca's John Culshaw. Ironically, Olof preceded Culshaw at Decca and coexisted with the imperious Legge at EMI. Although Olof was much more of a grey, behind-the-scenes presence than Legge or Culshaw, the list of legendary recordings he produced assures him a place with the industry's most important figures and a great many of his recordings have remained available and unsurpassed. Olof formed the Victor Olof Sextet in 1925 and continued to perform with that ensemble until 1939. At EMI, Olof took over from Lawrance Collingwood as producer of Sir Thomas Beecham's recordings. He knew Beecham well, having played an important role in assembling the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra for the conductor in 1946….in 1943, he joined Decca Records as a music advisor. He remained with Decca until 1956, functioning as a record producer and signing new postwar talent for the label. Under his aegis, Decca began to build an important opera catalog….He also produced the incomparable Walter/Ferrier/Patzak DAS LIED VON DER ERDE.”

“The Flonzaley Quartet was the deliberate creation of Éduard J. de Coppet of New York, who in 1902 engaged the original members to devote themselves entirely to quartet-playing, and not with any view to giving regular concerts in public. The group took its name from de Coppet's summer villa near Lausanne, in Switzerland, where the four musicians first rehearsed. The Flonzaley Quartet won high praise for the perfection of its ensemble and its artistic finish.”

“Only the Busch ensemble, in my experience, have presented the Beethoven quartets on record in their full majesty - and daring….The luminous beauty of the Busch Quartet’s playing can snatch your breath away in any of their repertoire, but the uninitiated should start with late Beethoven…. Busch had an unrivalled ability to bring out the spirituality of Beethoven’s quartets: he could freight a simple line of music with almost unbearable intensity and exaltation; and he identified totally with Beethoven’s sound world. His leadership inspired his colleagues….”
