This is an outstandingly good record. Campoli brings to the Tchaikovsky a quite ravishing sweetness; and he brings to also, of course, a fabulous technique... In its comnbination of sweetness and display this is an entirely convincing reading; and Campoli is by no means alone in the skill he brings to bear on the music. For Argenta persuades the L.S.O. into being simultaneously a sympathetic accompanist and a dashing exponent of the tuttis; and Decca, too, have turned on one of their best recording, with a satisfying balance between soloist and orchestra, and brilliance and richness of tone to spare. Campoli allows himself that touch of lingering here, of Viennese Liebesleid there, which, allied with an easiergoing movement, make for a very different reading from Heifetz.
