I'm new here, and have been fascinated to read the various discussions of the great players, particularly the thread about that towering talent, Nathan Milstein. One player who has made a deep impression on me is Arthur Grumiaux, for his purity and majesty of tone, his intonation, his stately architecture, and his perfection (in my view) of tempo. This impression is based in part on his out-of-print recording of the Brahms Concerto with the Royal Concertgebouw (Haitink) from 1958. I'm lucky enough to have a CD of it which was made from the old vinyl. (I might be persuased to share this CD with those who demonstrate sufficient enthusiasm, ha ha.)
I want to hear from others about Grumiaux's playing, and other great recordings he might have made. I have read much praise for his recordings of the Mozart concertos. Stories and opinuions are what I'm after here.
