"Not a Wunderkind but a wonder": this was Arthur Nikisch's verdict on the virtuoso Erica Morini, who specialized in Romantic violin repertoire and made numerous excellent recordings for American Decca, Westminster and Deutsche Grammophon in the 1950s and 1960s.
These recordings are now collected in one edition for the first time. 13 CDs are accompanied by a 44-page booklet featuring rare photos, images of the original covers, and an essay on Morini's life by specialist Tully Potter. The collection includes recordings with distinguished artists such as Ferenc Fricsay, Artur Rodzinski and Nicholas Harsanyi. Highlights span recordings of Beethoven's Violin Sonatas Nos. 3, 5, 7, and 8 with Rudolf Firkusny, and Bach's Violin Concertos Nos. 1 and 2. Deutsche Grammophon.
