A perfect English summer - in musical form

(Shame about the split, but it's worth it. The best performance of this on youtube in mho.)

My first recording of this was by Hugh Bean and I listened to it so often I can still pick his performance out if I hear it on the radio. But you're right about Jansen. I heard her give the most incredible and really thought through performance of the Tchaikovsky at the beginning of last season. She was stunning. I don't think she's here this coming season; I must check that out.

Oh yes, I had that Hugh Bean on LP, too!

Agreed - this is rather wonderful. Thanks so much, J.

Am ashamed to say I have no idea who my recording is by: but I do agree that this is a lovely, lovely piece!

TT - You can see her playing the Bruch violin concerto at this year's proms here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b00cwd8g/

Oh dear - it seems 'this video is no longer available' - probably contravened YouTube's rules in some way.

Right, OK, so now it's back again!
