Bizet - Carmen Fantaisie Op. 25/ Sarasate - Zigeunerweisen Op. 20 No. 1/ Saint-Sa'ns Havanaise Op. 83, Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso Op. 28 - Ruggiero Ricci /LSO /Gamba
Some violinists enrapture their audience with their purity of tone, others with their warm timbre or their amazing technical virtuosity. Pablo de Sarasate y Navascuzz was one of the very few violinists who combined all these merits, and in addition was a composer in his own right. The most famous of his 50 works are Zigeunerweisen, based on traditional gypsy folklore and the fiendishly difficult Carmen Fantasy. It goes without saying that these 19th-century bravura pieces are an absolute must for all those who wish to join the annals of great virtuoso violinists. And today, almost 50 years after the making of this recording, general consensus has it that Ruggiero Ricci has taken his rightful place among the great virtuosos.
