Honor and praise to Lord Menuhin, who was between 1929 and 1960
more or less, one of the greatest violinist in the world.
And to Jeno Hubay, violinist, teacher and composer of some of the most
hard and romantic hungarian violin music ever writen
His seldom heard and almost never played "Scenes of the Czardas",are IMO
absolutely extraordinary
