Campoli plays most beautifully – the finale, in particular, is accurate and brilliant in the extreme... Campoli’s sweet-toned account of the Mendelssohn has given pleasure for many years. His lyrical feeling in the slow movement and his virtuosity in the finale are asself-evident as is the excellence of the accompaniment under Sir Adrian Boult. There are many felicitous touches and the distinguished soloist plays magnificently throughout. His account of the Bruch Scottish Fantasia is no less fine, and the recorded sound isamazingly fresh. - The Gramophone Magazine

Certainly the Mendelssohn Concerto was Campoli’s signature dish... and this 1958 stereo recording is much admired. Campoli’s tone is deliciously sweet and he has typically interesting ideas in the passagework. As ever the slow movement is the heart of things,with affectionate lyricism always to the fore. The finale is poised, fluent and fleet - but not flashily so. The Scottish Fantasy was a work Campoli only recorded once... Campoli is an expressive host, warmly moulding the ‘MacBruch’ tunes to delightful effect. The scherzo is played with pure panache and there are some lovely diminuendi in the Andante sostenuto. He was without doubt the most dashing British violinist of his generation. - Jonathan Woolf, MusicWeb International
