About

The French violinist Ginette Neveu was just 30 when her plane crashed in the Azores in October 1949. She had studied with George Enescu and Carl Flesch, and as The Observer wrote in 1945, “Her playing was superbly vigorous and passionate, and made the impression that its great qualities, such as eloquent phrasing and an apparently limitless range and variety of tone, came from the only true source – an identity with the music and with her instrument.” Her complete recordings, specially remastered from the best sources available, are gathered on these four CDs, with her incandescent Sibelius Concerto taking pride of place.

2019 marks the centenary of Ginette Neveu’s birth.

Newly remastered in 24bit/96kHz from the best sources available by Studio Art & Son, Annecy.

All recording details are presented in the booklet in a table with date, matrix number, take number (where known), original catalogue number, date, venue and source used for the present box.

French violinist Ginette Neveu studied with George Enescu and Carl Flesch and rapidly built an international career and reputation. She died aged just 30 with her brother Jean Neveu in a plane which tragically crashed in the Azores in October 1949.

The present box gathers the complete studio recordings done by Ginette Neveu and contains the first CD reissue in the West of Ion Scărlătescu’s Bagatelle.
