In the second half of the 20th century, Zino Francescatti succeeded Jacques Thibaud as the French violinist par excellence. Francescatti's suave refinement and elegant phrasing epitomised the est characteristics of French violin playing, and his immaculate technique and brilliant tone secured his position among the great violinists of the century.
This CD presents Francescatti in favourite violin pieces and short encores recorded at the height of his career.
