Mischa Elman: a hole in his recording legacy?
I've been searching up and down, hither, thither, all over: is there any recording, either official, pirated, spirited, or whatever, of Elman performing Brahms' violin concerto? It was definitely part of his repertoire, but is there no recording of any such occurrence?
Please: help me!
Excellent question, to which I have no reply. I'm curious as to Kreisler's performance of the Tchaikovsky violin concerto, which others have said he did record.
Not sure about Mischa. You can hear Fritz playing the second movement of Tchaikovsky on youtube but I don't know about the rest of the piece.
unfortunately I don't know of any recording of the Brahms Concerto with Mischa Elman. That he played it in concert I'm sure. He did record the Brahms Sonata No. 3 in d minor. He recorded the Beethoven, The Wieniawski, Mozart 4 & 5, Mendelssohn, Lalo Symphonie Espagnole, Bruch G minor,Bach E major, Nardini, Vivaldi, and Khatchaturian Concertos, and of course the Tchaikovsky. I'm probably leaving some others out. It would have been nice to have a recording of Elman playing the Brahms concerto. Incidentally I don't think there is a complete recording of Kreisler playing Tchaikovsky but he did record the Chausson Poeme.
