Disc No: CDBP 9795 In the first half of last century, the Romantic wing of the German violin school had no finer exemplar than Georg Kulenkampff. Although he did not enjoy an international career like his Classical counterpart Adolf Busch, he made a number of recordings and his discography was rich in concertos: studio versions of works by Mozart (Turkish), Beethoven, Spohr (Gesangsszene), Mendelssohn, Schumann, Brahms (D minor and A minor), Bruch (G minor), Tchaikovsky and Dvorák, as well as live versions of the Glazunov, Sibelius and Reger. In the 1947 recording of the Double Concerto in A minor, heard on this release, Kulenkampff is partnered by cellist Enrico Mainardi, with Carl Schuricht conducting the L’Orchestre de la Suisse Romande. Kulenkampff’s association with Mainardi went back to the mid-1930s, when he had a trio with pianist Edwin Fischer and Mainardi. The 1937 recording of the Violin Concerto in D major, reissued here, sees Kulenkampff in fine form; it was a work he had previously performed in public – at the Royal Philharmonic Society, Queen’s Hall, in 1934.
