-- and similar variants!

They are all one and the same, I think.

The guy has technique and emotional depth to stand proud in anyone's list of the great violinists of the recording age.

The downsides are that he usually recorded with 2nd tier, provincial orchestras and the sound quality is usually fairly decent rather than great.

--- but just listen to his playing! :love:

His Beethoven concerto has a sense of flow and free-wheeling momentum in the 1st movement that sends shivers down my spine.

His 1st Paganini concerto has articulation and precision that is a joy to hear - and is consummately superior to any of the 'big names' I have heard.

There are quite a few other recordings of him around, too.

Go on, give him a try! :)

Happy Crimbo ! :testy1:
