Herman Krebbers plays Violin Concerto of Ludwig van Beethoven with the Residency Orchestra conducted by Willem van Otterloo

This is the re-release of the recording made in the Concertgebouw (Amsterdam) on January 25 and 26, 1952. It was first issued on A00132L and here released as the first LP in the famous series with photographs of Ann Pickford made by renown Dutch photographer Paul Huf. Ann was depicted in various creative settings and configurations. Using a model was not new. RCA had done this already in 1954 and must have brought up the idea to create an entire series in the same vein. The reference number of this Beethoven recording is S04000L and was the first release in the series.

Philips S04000L. Record is VG to EX yet plays well througout. It is probably best played with a mono cartridge. But the collector who wants this edtion will certainly know how to enjoy this old LP record pressed in 1956. Obviously an item to add to an order of multiple items.

Herman Krebbers plays Johannes Brahms

Violin Concerto in D, Op. 77 (Cadenza by Joseph Joachim).

The Concertgebouw Orchestra
Bernard Haitink - Conductor

Precise and in-depth performance. It is majestic and communicative. This outstanding performance displays no superficial romanticism. His great playing was already evident when he at age 19 played this violin comcerto with Willem Mengelberg in 1943 and can be heard on YouTube. With Mengelberg he played an extraordinary cadenza. In this Philips recording he plays the cadenza of Joseph Joachim. The recording with Bernanrd Haitink was made at the occasion of Herman Krebbers's jubilee of 40 years as a soloist and also as leader of the Concertgebouw Orchestra.

Mayumi Fujikawa plays the Violin Concertos of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart:

This is the complete edition of Mozart's Works for Solo Violin and Orchestra: Concertos K 207, 211, 216, 218, 219, 268, 271a, and Rondo concertante, played by Mayumi Fujikawa.

 

 

Mayumi Fujikawa studied first with her father (an amateur violinist) and later she visited the conservatory. She also studied with Leonid Kogan and she won second prize in the Tchaikovsky Violin Competition in 1970. First Prize was won by Gidon Kremer. See her short biography on the site of The Trinity Laban Conservatoire where she is a professor.

In the 1970s she made a recording for the Philips label. And in 1979-1980 she recorded for Decca together with distinguished conductor Walter Weller. The sessions with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra took place in Kingsway Hall in 1979 and 1980. K 219 and K 286 were recorded digitally (DDA). The other works were recorded in the analog format (AAA).

Wolfgang Schneiderhan recorded Frank Martin's Violin Concerto with Ernest Ansermet for Decca. Later there was a recording made for the Candide label of VOX with the Orchestra of Radio Luxemburg conducted by the composer himself. The recording was made in 1955 and published in England in February 1956. Around 1960 the 10" mono record was deleted from the catalog. Ernest Ansermet and Frank Martin corresponded from 1934 until 1968 and Ansermet made an effort to promote the composer's music by leading performances and making a few recordings for the Decca label.

Iramac was a Dutch record label founded by Silvio Samama. In 1965 the first classical recordings were released. Artists of the Iramac catalog were Yi Kwei Sze (bass), Sydney Harth (violin), Brooks Smith (piano), Daniel Wayenberg (piano), Theo Olof (violin), Jean Decroos (cello), Danielle Dechenne (piano), David Zinman (conductor), Nap de Klijn (violin), Rudolf Jansen (piano), Han de Vries (oboe), Janny van Wering (harpsichord), Carel van Leeuwen Boomkamp (cello), Sonia Anschutz (piano), The Netherlands Chamber Orchestra, The Hague Residency Orchestra, and Vanderzand (conductor). The company started a popular record label in order to generate extra income to finance the classical recordings. The popuIar side of the Iramac company became the new label Relax. Yet Iramac could not survive alongside the big record companies. In 1969 the label ceased to exist and several recordings were sold to other companies.

Szymon Goldberg - Violin
Radu Lupu - Piano

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart:
Sonatas for Piano and Violin K 379 and K 547

If you are searching for the Mozart Violin Sonatas performed by Szymon Goldberg and pianist Radu Lupu (who won the Cliburn Competition in 1966) on Decca SXL, you will have no results. The Sonatas recorded by Decca in the early 1970s (in fact from 1973 on) were never issued on the SXL label but were released on the Ace of Diamonds label, prefix SDD, instead.

The argument for this decision could be that Decca did not expect big sales and wanted to sell the records individually on the Ace of Diamonds label and as a complete series in DECCA box 13BB207/212. After all Decca had just made an impressive recording with Kyung Wha Chung of the Stravinsky and Walton Violin Concertos with Rudolf Kempe and engaged the young violinist from Korea to make more recordings. On top of that Szymon Goldberg could not be tagged as a star violinist like the younger Henryk Szeryng was - who interpreted the complete set of Sonatas with pianist Ingrid Haebler for Philips. Goldberg's stardom was noted when he was younger. Nevertheless both Goldberg and Szeryng do find a place on the shelf of the collector of violin recordings. On offer here is one individual Ace of Diamonds recording, reference SDD 517.

Felix Ayo Plays J.S. Bach:

This is the 2 LP release of 1979 of Ayo's performances. Indicated in the dead wax of Side 3 is the year 1978. The records are pressed in the Philips factory in Baarn, Netherlands.

Ruggiero Ricci plays 15 famous violins - Leon Pommer on Piano

Violins built by Antonio Stradivari, Andrea Amati, Nicolo Amati, Guarneri del Gesu, Carlo Bergonzi, Gasparo da Salo.

Compositions by Vivaldi, Paganini, Haendel, Mozart, Tchaikovsky, Schumann, Brahms, Mendelsson, Nardini, Veracini, Paradis, Desplanes, Hubay, and Kabalevsky,

Originally recorded by American Decca and issued in Great Britain on Brunswick (SXA and AXA). Also issued on Deutsche Grammophon which had a contract with American Decca at the time. Very well recorded. The recording was later reissued in the US on the MCA label, the successor of American Decca. This issue is pressed in the Netherlands from MCA plates (so it seems). This was a limited release for record shops that specialised in classical music. The gatefold cover has the original notes but in small typeface.

Nikolai Myaskovsky: Violin Concerto in D minor Op. 44

Gregory Feigin - Violin
State Radio Symphony Orchestra conducted by Alexander Dmitriev
Recorded in 1976.

Gregory Feigin (Feighin) is best known as a chamber music player. The Myaskovsky Concerto shows faint influences of Glazunov whose Violin Concerto is so well performed by Roman Totenberg and conductor Georg Ludwig Jochum. And there is also a bit of similarity in style of violin playing I should say.

Three Dutch Violinists

Evening of Violins - AVOND DER VIOLEN

Herman Krebbers - Max Bruch: Violin Concerto No. 1 in G, Op. 26

Theo Olof - Peter Tchaikovsky: Violin Concerto in D minor Op. 35

Emmy Verhey - Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy: Violin Concerto in D (1822)

Herman Krebbers, Theo Olof and Emmy Verhey - Serenade for Three Violins and Chamber Orchestra composed by Lucas Vis in 1973 and dedicated to Bruno Maderna.

The Frysian Orchestra (Frysk Orkest) is conducted by Libor Pesek.

Herman Krebbers performs the Bruch Concerto as meticulously and precise as as he did his Beethoven and Brahms with Bernard Haitink on the Philips label, also recorded in the 1970s. The tempi are well chosen. Libor Pesek adds well to the intensity of the performance.
In the early days of the Philips label Krebbers recorded Beethoven, Paganini and Vieuxtemps with Willem van Otterloo and The Hague Residency Orchestra (r.1954).
Krebbers and Olof recorded Bach (Double Concerto, r.1951), Bartok (Duos for Two Violins, r.1954), and the Concerto for Two Violins by Henk Badings (dedicated to the two violinists, r.1955), in the 1950s for Philips.
When Philips made a deal with Columbia in the US, these violinists disappeared from the Philips rostrum of artists as Philips had now internationally sounding names like Zino Francescati and Isaac Stern in the catalog. But there is also the question whether a soloist wants to travel from one stage to another and devote his life entirely to a solo career while promoting his recordings at the same time.
Herman Krebbers recorded the Bruch Concerto (and also the Brahms) earlier with the Brabant Orchestra conducted by Hein Jordans.
Here is most certainly the only recording ever made of Theo Olof performing the Tchaikovsky Concerto.
And young Emmy Verhey, who started a promising career, plays the rarely recorded Concerto from 1822 composed by 13 year old Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy.

This is a Dutch EMI 2xLP set 5 C 183-24 926/27. Recording produced by Klaas A. Posthuma. Recording Technicians: André de Vries, Gerard Hali, and Ed Hilberts. Records and gatefold cover NM. Liner notes in Dutch only.

David Oistrakh plays Aram Khachaturian

Violin Concerto, conducted by the composer. Moscow Radio Symphony Orchestra.

The first time David Oistrakh recorded this Concerto was in the 78 RPM era. In the mono days of the LP he did make a recording of the same, again with the composer, and also in the West with Sir Eugene Goossens. The recording on offer here is from the stereo era. In my opinion Oistrakh's performances are among the most beautiful and deep felt of this work by the Armenian composer.

Nap de Klijn plays a Stradivarius from 1714

Nap (Nathan) de Klijn (1909-1979) was married to pianist Alice Heksch (1936-1957). They played in a quartet, and as a duo. Famous are their recordings of several Mozart Sonatas. They are also admired playing violin gems together under their respective pseudonyms, Romano Rubato (Nap de Klijn) and Bianca Ritorno (Alice Heksch), for the Philips label issued in the S-R Series. The early death of Alice Heksch completely changed Nap de Klijn's career as a performer. In later years he performed with pianist Rudolf Jansen and recorded for the Iramac label.

Szymon Goldberg - Violin
Radu Lupu - Piano

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart:
Sonatas for Piano and Violin K 377 and K 526

If you are searching for the Mozart Violin Sonatas performed by Szymon Goldberg and pianist Radu Lupu on Decca SXL, you will have no results. The Sonatas recorded by Decca in the early 1970s (in fact from 1973 on) were never issued on the SXL label but were released on the Ace of Diamonds label, prefix SDD, instead.

The argument for this decision could be that Decca did not expect big sales and wanted to sell the records individually on the Ace of Diamonds label and as a complete series in DECCA box 13BB207/212. After all Decca had just made an impressive recording with Kyung Wha Chung of the Stravinsky and Walton Violin Concertos with Rudolf Kempe and engaged the young violinist from Korea to make more recordings. On top of that Szymon Goldberg could not be tagged as a star violinist like the younger Henryk Szeryng was - who interpreted the complete set of Sonatas with pianist Ingrid Haebler for Philips. Goldberg's stardom was noted when he was younger. Nevertheless both Goldberg and Szeryng do find a place on the shelf of the collector of violin recordings. On offer here is one individual Ace of Diamonds recording, reference SDD 517.

Nicolo Paganini: Violin Concerto No. 2 in A minor
Camille Saint-Saëns: Violin Concerto No. 1 in A Major

From 1950 on American Decca had a business liaison with Deutsche Grammophon in Hannover. Deutsche Grammophon recordings were pressed in the US by Decca from American plates for the US market.
Several Decca recordings of artists like Lilian Fuchs, Halina Czerny-Stefanska, Andres Segovia, and of course Ruggiero Ricci, were issued by DGG in Europe. One of these was the mono version of American Decca DL710106, Deutsche Grammophon LPEM 19 478, pressed in 1965, also released in stereo. It is not easy to find the reference number of the stereo equivalent because the record had a short life. Three years later it was no longer listed in the Deutsche Grammophon catalog edition 1968/69.
In 1971 American Decca ceased to exist. As a result Deutsche Grammophon did no longer issue American Decca Recordings. Therefor the proliferation of both the stereo and the mono issues was not too high and are not easily encountered.

Henryk Szeryng plays Beethoven

ViolinConcerto in D, Op. 61

The Concertgebouw Orchestra is conducted by Bernard Haitink

Henryk Szeryng recorded this concerto several times, in London with Schmidt-Isserstedt (Mercury, 1966), in Paris with Thibaud (Odeon, 1954 or earlier), and in Bucharest with Conta (Electrecord, 1961). Here on offer is the performance with Bernard Haitink on Philips 6500 531, recorded on 26 and 27 April, 1973. While most violinists use Kreisler's cadenzas, Szeryng plays the cadenzas written by Joseph Joachim. It is probably also because of this fact, that Szeryng's interpretation has a very personal, almost mysterious, inclination.

Violinist Herman Krebbers is soloist, he conducts the Amsterdam Chamber Orchestra, or is the concert master of this ensemble when cponducted by André Rieu.

CBS records, references 51208 through 51217.

When Herman Krebbers celebrated his 40th anniversary of his carreer as a violinist in the mid 1970s, Philips made exceptional recordings of exceptionally, stylish and strong interpretations of the Violin Concertos of Johannes Brahms and Ludwig van Beethoven with Bernard Haitink conducting the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, and of W.A. Mozart K 217 and 218 with David Zinman who was conductor of the Netherlands Chamber Orchestra in those years. These are listed on this same page.


CBS, who had bought the Artone label and pressing plant in the Netherlands, had various recordings of Herman Krebbers in their vault made in the 1960s. Now CBS re-released these recordings in 1980. There were 10 discs in total. Each disc had its own distinct cover showing a detail of the Concertgebouw, the building in Amsterdam, which was placed in the background and a porcelain statuette of a violin player in the foreground. The statuettes are part of Herman Krebbers's own cherished collection.


Seven of these recordings are with the Amsterdam Chamber Orchestra conducted by Krebbers himself. Three are with André Rieu (père) conducting. And one is of a Sonata and two Sonatinas with Danielle Dechenne at the piano.
The recording dates may shine through somewhat in these discs, but the new pressings do sound very well and all do show Krebbers's violin playing. Various artists joined the Amsterdam Chamber Orchestra in the 1960s. There were Leny van der Lee and Janny van Wering on harpsichord, and Han de Vries on oboe, and in Concertos for Two Violins by J.S. Bach and A. Vivaldi, he is joined by Theo Olof.

In 1979 the violinist made a wrong move and dislocated his shoulder. Help came rather late and this had consequences. It meant the end of his solo carreer but he continued his work as an outstanding pedagogue. This may have led to the re-release of these recordings.

The records are NM. Covers are NM as well.
