One of the most famous recordings of Polish-British-Canadian violinist Ida Haendel, who passed away last year.
After performing the Sibelius concerto in Helsinki in 1949, broadcasted on radio, Ida Haendel received a letter from the composer: “Please accept my most cordial thanks for your excellent performance of my Violin Concerto. You played it masterfully in every respect. I congratulate you upon the great success. But above all, I congratulate myself that my Concerto has found an interpreter of your standard.”
This 1975 recording was made under the baton of Sibelius specialist Paavo Berglund.
