Description: This set, featuring one young European violinist per concerto resident at the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel in Waterloo (where they are individually coached by soloists of international reputation; the master in residence for these recordings was Augustin Dumay), is an excellent way to get all Vieuxtemps' concertos at budget-price. A booklet with 20 pages of notes per language and with plenty of period photos and score examples makes it a budget-luxury item. 3 CDs. Mid-price.
