Extractions: [64:09] budget-price by Derek Lim When Bronislaw Huberman (1882-1947) was but 13, he performed Brahms' Violin Concerto, reducing the composer to tears, earning for himself a kiss on the forehead from the old man and an anecdote for which he is always remembered nowadays for. What may be less well-known is that Huberman also founded the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra , and was the main reason behind the virtual banishment of Richard Wagner from the concert stage of the Holy Land in response to the Holocaust (Hitler's favourite composer was Wagner himself, followed by Bruckner). However tantalizing the prospects of a Brahms Violin Concerto recording with Huberman may be, we are left instead with a small body of concerto recordings, including a Lalo Symphonie Espagnole , some short virtuoso pieces, and on this disc, the concertos by Beethoven and Tchaikovsky.

HUBERMAN DEAD Praised by Brahms at 14 The loss of his right thumb, cut off in a shaving accident forty-two years ago, proved only a temporary handicap to the violinist. To Mr. Huberman, American audiences were the best listeners that an artist could find anywhere except in the Netherlands. He created his reputation in Europe and gained fame by playing all over the world, but he preferred coming to this country, where, he said, he received his finest inspirations. Mr. Huberman resigned from the teaching staff of the Vienna State Academy in August, 1936, to devote himself more fully to the new orchestra in Palestine. News of his leaving the master class at the academy was received with dismay by the musical public of Vienna, where the violinist had been an idol for years. The violinist, narrowly missed death on Oct. 6, 1937, in a plane crash near Palembang, Sumatra. Four others in the plane were killed, but Mr. Huberman escaped with a fracture of the left wrist and one of the right hand. The muscles were not damaged, however, and a year later he was able to resume his concert career.

Extractions: Learn from the past, enjoy the present, work for the future. -Bronislaw Huberman A vital culture once thrived in middle Europe. Its multi-lingual citizens had endured life under Russian Tsars, Austrian and German emperors, Turkish sultans, and their own equally horrid Nationalists. The writer Gregor von Rezzori came from Czernowitz, Austria, or Cernauti under Romania, then Cernovtsy in the Soviet Union and now part of an independent Ukraine. The languages used locally included German, Romanian, the tongue of the Huzuls, Armenian, Yiddish, Ladino, Hebrew, Ukrainian, Turkish, Polish, and Gypsy dialects. Rezzori told this writer about a Huberman recital in his native city: "The Concert Hall had rather large entrance doors on the sides which led out onto the street. For Huberman's concert there came a fantastically snobbish public in white gloves made up of officers and functionaries. They scarcely clapped with their white gloved hands. After the first part, the doors swung open and they swarmed out for cigarettes. The hall filled again for the second half and Huberman played to a storm of applause; the Jews loitering outside had come in!" Bronislaw Huberman was acclaimed during his fifty-year career as one of the most musical and original violinists. His popularity was at its strongest in Czernowitz, throughout Poland, Czechoslovakia, Romania, Hungary, Austria, Germany, and Russia. He repeatedly toured throughout the entire world. Under Fascism and Communism, the culture he embodied collapsed and now barely exists. The few recordings made by Huberman reveal an art unimaginable in our time. During his life, Huberman's sincere and personal style created polemics, which were discussed in a toned down manner in Carl Flesch's autobiography. (For a detailed account see his son's book: Carl F. Flesch. 'And do you also play the violin?', Toccata Press, 1990; and in German as 'Und Spielst du auch Geiger?', Atlantis Verlag, 1990).
Arbiter Liner Notes It was in Bucharest, too, that I first met and heard bronislaw huberman. Two factorsare decisive if we wish to judge a violinist objectively his technical http://www.arbiterrecords.com/notes/115notes.html
Extractions: "A judgment of Huberman is quickly rendered. He is simply a phenomenon, an apparition before whom criticism ceases. Mind you, Huberman was never that which is known as a 'child prodigy'. At the age of six years, he was already a miraculous man who, far from being reduced to normal stature, kept himself at an illustrious height." It is surprising to discover a group of concert performances by an artist who died more than fifty years ago, an opportunity unlikely to occur again. Musicians such as Bronislaw Huberman (1882-1947) did not respond well to the sterility, acoustics, and limitations of the recording studio. When Huberman made discs of Beethoven's Violin Concerto, he was obliged to break the continuity every four minutes and discuss whether to play the same excerpt again or go onward. The record company's choice of such a draconian and inhibiting conductor as George Szell did not help matters either. Although the disc's excellence is a tribute to his professionalism, was there more to Huberman's Beethoven? The recent discovery of a 1944 War Bond concert of Huberman with Leon Barzin and the National Orchestral Association reveals how a public performance allowed his artistry to fully emerge in a work of great significance. Huberman's collaboration with Ignaz Friedman in Beethoven's Kreutzer Sonata is well known, yet the 78 rpm sets released in England and America contained different takes. We include here the first and third movements from the American edition, as the only available recordings are from the British version. The second movement is identical in both albums, thus their alternate performances are published here a supplement to the complete recording, which has been published by other companies.

Extractions: with Joseph Szigeti, violin; Pierre Fournier, cello While the pianist Artur Schnabel is also remembered as teacher and composer, chamber music was the distinguishing work of his musical life. His wife, the singer Theresa Behr, had a profound influence on his music-making; in addition to a group of Lieder with Behr, we can hear Schnabel in recordings of Mozart's Piano Quartet in G minor, the Dvorak, Schubert and Schumann piano quintets, and Beethoven's cello sonatas. Schnabel's earliest trio consisted of violinist Karl Flesch and cellist Jean Gérardy (who was replaced by Hugo Becker); Flesch and Schnabel collaborated to edit the Mozart and Brahms violin sonatas. In the decade before the Second World War, Schnabel and Bronislaw Huberman gave recitals in America in sonata repertoire that included the Brahms G major; Beethoven's Fifth, Seventh, Eighth, Ninth ("Kreutzer"), and Tenth; selected sonatas by Schumann and Mozart, and the Schubert Fantasia.
Extractions: Crotchet Amazon UK Amazon USA This recording is most emphatically not for the general listener who wants a coupling of the Beethoven / Tchaikovsky Concertos. With that said we can move on to what the recording is. Released under the Naxos Great Violinists series it incorporates two performances by Bronislaw Huberman, the Polish violinist (b 1882) who at 14 years of age played the Brahms Concerto to an audience that included the composer. He was at his peak when Hitler came to power, after which he refused further engagements in Germany and became deeply involved in the founding of the Palestine Symphony Orchestra (later the Israel SO). He died in 1947. The 78's from which the Beethoven is taken are from a recording session in June 1934 with the Vienna Philharmonic under George Szell. From his first entry one is struck by Huberman's wonderful ringing tone - the recording balance has him prominent but not excessively so - and technical magnificence (try the closing cadenza to the Allegro starting at 16'57"). The performance itself is a fine one with a

Extractions: The Polish violinist Bronislaw Huberman, born in 1882, made his debut as soloist in a Spohr violin concerto at the age of seven. He studied briefly in Warsaw, Berlin, Frankfurt and Paris, but by the age of twelve had already made a name for himself, making a triumphant appearance in the singer Adelina Patti's farewell concert in Vienna in 1895 and the following year playing Brahm's Violin Concerto in the presence of the approving composer. His brilliant international career was interrupted by the accession to power of the National Socialists in Germany, after which he refused further engagements there and was instrumental in the establishment of the Palestine Symphony Orchestra, the forerunner of the later Israel Symphony Orchestra. A much admired performer, with a highly individual and occasionally controversial style, he retired in later years to Switzerland, where he died in 1947. Discography
